Symphonie Espagnole : Opus 21, for Violin & Piano by Édouard Lalo

Oh, my god, my violin is doing the salsa! Reading clearly printed notes on paper, going higher and higher on my instrument, it's a challenge to get my violin to dance when all we've ever done really is make melodies. Lalo breathes in a Spanish flavor into his composition that the violinist and the accompaniment become dancers instead of just musicians, but it is up to said dancers to bring the music alive.
