Leticia Moreno, playing a 1762 Nicola Gagliano violin, and Chloé Dufresne unite to show off their skills and celebrate International Women's Day. Gabriel Faure’s Pavane, Op. 50 is celebrated for its enchanting melody; written in 1887, is a short and beloved composition by Fauré, initially for piano and later orchestrated, becoming one of his most popular works. The "Carmen Fantasy," Op. 25, by Pablo de Sarasate, was composed in 1881 as a fantasy on themes from Georges Bizet's opera "Carmen." The "Carmen Fantasy" became a benchmark for measuring violin virtuosity through the twentieth century. While rooted in the opera's moods and atmospheres, the piece is meant to be enjoyed and celebrated for its exhilarating form, reflecting the nature of humanity and its potential for extraordinary achievements. "Tzigane" is a rhapsodic composition by the French composer Maurice Ravel, created in 1924 and dedicated to Hungarian violinist Jelly d'Arányi. "Tzigane" draws its name from the generic European term for "gypsy," reflecting a popular musical exoticism rather than an authentic representation of Roma culture. Antonin Dvorak: Symphony No.7 in D minor, Op.70 composition is vivid, with the music unfolding through a determined theme accentuated by the richness of ideas, leading to climaxes and transitions, such as a pastoral interlude. Ultimately it is a complex, emotional, and thematic-rich symphony.
