Recently, I performed in a Talent Show at my school. Every year, a few parents are in charge of putting together a Talent Show where fourth and fifth graders get to perform anything they like. After many rehearsals and hard work, many parents come to watch the performance. I performed Czardas by Monte on the Violin. We had many rehearsals that took place after school, and all the performing students worked very hard at perfecting their dances, songs, and various instrument pieces.
Vittorio Monte was an Italian Composer born on January 6, 1868, and died on June 20th, 1922. He was a violinist and a conductor, and wrote many pieces for the violin. One of his most famous pieces was Czardas, which was the piece I played for this Talent Show. This piece is very slow in the beginning, however in the middle and end, it speeds up and ends in a dramatic way. It took me a long time to learn to play this piece fast.
I hope you enjoy my performance.
Have you ever performed at a big event?
