Hey y'alls, share your favorite Baroque pieces here! I'll start. [after writing this whole list that took like an hour, i really don't know what the purpose was... but i had fun making it!]

first: Vivaldi's Concerto for Guitar and Strings in D Major
I first heard this when my friend played the second movement on our music tour back in 2018! Ever since then, I was obsessed with it! He played the first movement in 2019, and then this year he played the third movement (and I got to accompany on harpsichord!). Whenever I listen to it, I think of him! :cheer:

second: Vivaldi - Concerto for two cellos in G minor, RV 531
I was slightly familiar with this thanks to ThePianoGuys, but I never listened to the actual version until 2019 when our strings ensemble played the third movement (at least i think it was the third movement, I don't quite remember...)! I liked it, so I added it to my playlist.

third: Vivaldi - Autumn
Okay, yeah, the four seasons are really overrated, and I don't know why I have this on my playlist :lol: if anything, I would probably go with winter instead... but it's there!

fourth: Vivaldi: Concerto for 4 Violins in B minor RV 580
Our strings ensemble played the first movement in 2019, and I loved it! I still have a video on my phone from them playing it in Canada. I couldn't go without adding it to my playlist!

fifth: Vivaldi Concerto for 2 mandolins in G RV 532
In 2017-2018 my handbells ensemble played an arrangement of the second movement. I enjoyed playing it, and it brings back half-fond and half-interesting memories of that time in my life :lol: Maybe one day I'll learn the mandolin and play one or all of the movements!

sixth: Vivaldi - Concerto for Mandolin in C Major RV425
I think I found this from the sidebar on YouTube when I was listening to one of my other Baroque pieces... I listened to it and liked it!

seventh: Vivaldi: Trio Sonata for Lute, Violin and B.C. in G minor RV 85
This is also from a YouTube sidebar I think! I like its simplicity. I also wish I could play it, but I don't play any of the instruments... yet... :lol:

eighth: J.S. BACH: Violin Concerto in G minor BWV 1056R
Pretty sure this is also from a YouTube sidebar... I love the bounciness of the first movement so much! I want to join a Baroque ensemble and play this with me on the harpsichord!

ninth: Bach - Prelude and Fugue in G minor, BWV 558
I've played the prelude already, but back when I was learning it and the fugue, I decided to look it up to listen to so it would be easier for me to learn! I still have to master the fugue, so I should listen to it more often!

tenth: BWV 535 - Bach's Prelude & Fugue in G Minor
I found this while searching for the BWV 558 and decided to put it into my playlist in case I learn this one day!

eleventh: Vivaldi Violin Concerto in E minor, RV278
The intense beginning of this one really caught my attention! And yet again, this was discovered via the YouTube sidebar!

twelth: PDQ Bach's Toot Suite
Okay, this one may not exactly count, but I'm including it anyway because PDQ Bach is great.

That's it for my Baroque list as of now!

Interesting how you have a lot of stringed instruments in your faves. I take it, you're either learning or have learned violin.

@JoyBaker, Vivaldi's Spring is very nice! It's very recognizable :cheer:
@Khriz, I am indeed a big Vivaldi and Bach fan! I should really expand my horizons, though :lol: And nice deductions, but I haven't learned violin. The only stringed instruments I play are the ukulele, the guitar, and the harp. :lol:

Oh... too bad Bach didn't compose something with ukulele... that would've been interesting tho.
I figured that you were into strings.

I mean, kinda. I would like to learn the cello someday, but I don't really have the money for lessons or buying an instrument because all my money right now is being funneled into my main 3 instruments :lol:
But what you said about Bach composing for the ukulele gave me an idea... maybe I could try playing one of the mandolin concertos on my uke :lol: I mean, during the first few months after I learned about Vivaldi's Concerto for Guitar and Strings in D, I ended up playing as much as I could on a ukulele (I wasn't around my guitar then)... it just may work!

Vivaldi's Concerto for Guitar and Strings in D Major is beautiful! Thank you so much for compiling this collection of music! Do you have any suggestions for someone who would like to learn how to read music or play an instrument? :cheer:
Of course! My first tip is that if you have time, learn the piano first. Its skill sets are usually easily transferrable to other instruments. You'll also learn how to read both bass clef and treble clef in piano, which is very helpful (unless you're playing viola :lol: ).
Another tip is to have a schedule for practicing. Yeah, sometimes you might hate it, but practicing consistently will help with your musical prowess!
My last tip for now is to not skimp on the technique practices. They help to develop your hand strength and dexterity. I'm actually thinking about learning some guitar practices because I envy my friend who plays guitar easily :lol:
I may post more tips later; also Khriz probably has some good tips too!

Hi @Kriz Kool Katz, could you please tell me what you would recommend for someone who is interested in learning music? :)

@ emmykitty, Thank you so much for your helpful suggestions! I appreciate your insights for learning important skills in music! :cheer:

Hey y'alls, share your favorite Baroque pieces here! I'll start. [after writing this whole list that took like an hour, i really don't know what the purpose was... but i had fun making it!]

first: Vivaldi's Concerto for Guitar and Strings in D Major
I first heard this when my friend played the second movement on our music tour back in 2018! Ever since then, I was obsessed with it! He played the first movement in 2019, and then this year he played the third movement (and I got to accompany on harpsichord!). Whenever I listen to it, I think of him! :cheer:

second: Vivaldi - Concerto for two cellos in G minor, RV 531
I was slightly familiar with this thanks to ThePianoGuys, but I never listened to the actual version until 2019 when our strings ensemble played the third movement (at least i think it was the third movement, I don't quite remember...)! I liked it, so I added it to my playlist.

third: Vivaldi - Autumn
Okay, yeah, the four seasons are really overrated, and I don't know why I have this on my playlist :lol: if anything, I would probably go with winter instead... but it's there!

fourth: Vivaldi: Concerto for 4 Violins in B minor RV 580
Our strings ensemble played the first movement in 2019, and I loved it! I still have a video on my phone from them playing it in Canada. I couldn't go without adding it to my playlist!

fifth: Vivaldi Concerto for 2 mandolins in G RV 532
In 2017-2018 my handbells ensemble played an arrangement of the second movement. I enjoyed playing it, and it brings back half-fond and half-interesting memories of that time in my life :lol: Maybe one day I'll learn the mandolin and play one or all of the movements!

sixth: Vivaldi - Concerto for Mandolin in C Major RV425
I think I found this from the sidebar on YouTube when I was listening to one of my other Baroque pieces... I listened to it and liked it!

seventh: Vivaldi: Trio Sonata for Lute, Violin and B.C. in G minor RV 85
This is also from a YouTube sidebar I think! I like its simplicity. I also wish I could play it, but I don't play any of the instruments... yet... :lol:

eighth: J.S. BACH: Violin Concerto in G minor BWV 1056R
Pretty sure this is also from a YouTube sidebar... I love the bounciness of the first movement so much! I want to join a Baroque ensemble and play this with me on the harpsichord!

ninth: Bach - Prelude and Fugue in G minor, BWV 558
I've played the prelude already, but back when I was learning it and the fugue, I decided to look it up to listen to so it would be easier for me to learn! I still have to master the fugue, so I should listen to it more often!

tenth: BWV 535 - Bach's Prelude & Fugue in G Minor
I found this while searching for the BWV 558 and decided to put it into my playlist in case I learn this one day!

eleventh: Vivaldi Violin Concerto in E minor, RV278
The intense beginning of this one really caught my attention! And yet again, this was discovered via the YouTube sidebar!

twelth: PDQ Bach's Toot Suite
Okay, this one may not exactly count, but I'm including it anyway because PDQ Bach is great.

That's it for my Baroque list as of now!
Vivaldi's Concerto for Guitar and Strings in D Major is beautiful! Thank you so much for compiling this collection of music! Do you have any suggestions for someone who would like to learn how to read music or play an instrument? :cheer:

;) Bravissimo on the tips. ;)
But for my tips, I need to know which instrument you plan to play.
For now, I recommend using emmykitty's tips. Because from my experience, I find those to be basic, but very crucial.

Hmmmmm. Ok I can read notes. It’s kind of hard to type it all out. It would be easier if I could show photos. Maybe this can help:

Well, I wouldn't recommend going on YT and looking for music lessons on there. Because most of the videos that will come up will pretty much teach 4 or 5 different chords that you can use to play "thousands" of songs.
Majority of understanding music is simply understanding notes. In songs, you have to know which notes you play, in what order, how loud/soft, how fast/slow, and with other notes (those are chords). The rest, well, is actually doing it.
I'd like to know which instrument you're using so I can give you more tips.

@Kriz Kool Kat, since I do not have an instrument at home, what would be the best possible way of learning an instrument during the pandemic? I'm still trying to social distance.

Alright, I really can't help you much, since playing violins isn't my cup of tea. But, there is something else I need to know. How much about music do you know? Like do you know the 12 different notes? The 12 different major and minor scales? That stuff, ok?
Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]


Since you don't have an instrument, I suggest you look up Virtual Piano. When I didn't have one, I used that. So check that out, and I'll come back to you.
