    "Fantasy for violin and orchestra"

    Does anyone know any similar pieces as Joshua Bell " Fantasy for violin and orchestra", as I found it to be beautiful.

    The Fantasy is by Nigel Hess and is from the film "Ladies in Lavender".

    Although I'd agree it's good for film music, I find it quite formulaic and not very rich or deep compared with a lot of violin music from the classical repertoire. In particular, the harmonies are mostly a fairly simple repeated pattern (with one or two rather awkward changes) and the melody is effectively a concentrated dose of "best bits" following well-known patterns.

    For similar popular music from the standard repertoire, you might like the slow movement of Bruch's 1st violin concerto. I really enjoyed playing that with a local orchestra a few years ago.

    Schindler's List played by Itzhak Perlman. Its a very easy song to play, but to play it like Perlman...
