Description

This is how I jump start every day to make the rest of my day more aesthetic, both mentally and physically. I'm practicing the "cadenza" section of Tchaikovsky's violin concerto (One of the most powerful pieces of music ever conceived by the human mind: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKhZP3TdrA8) There is a cadenza in the middle of all the violin concertos, where the orchestra simply stops playing and the conductor stops conducting. All there's left is the soloist playing a juiced up variation of the theme. This is the part where the soloist gets to go crazy, improvise, and be as creative as possible with the violin to show off this virtuoso skill. He can play for as long as he wants to, and nods his head to the conductor to cue the orchestra to come back in.
