The most common type of violin music is Country music because it's to express other countries so we or other parts of the world will learn about different scenes in like Russia or something. Russian music should have heavy, trudged feeling because Russia has a lot of snow. There isn't an instrument called a “Gypsy violin”. Players in gypsy style have a preference for violins with a dark tone-quality from which they can draw a special sound.(A Stradivarius) The listener gets the impression of the feeling that the violinist is trying to express. Concerto music is one of the most popular music in the entire world. It is one of the most popular music because for most violin competitions, the last round requires a concerto for the final and ending piece. One of the most common concerto pieces is Dmitri Kabalevsky Concerto in C major. It is an expressive piece with slow, solemn and fast with seat-jumping parts. Sonatas are especially for every competition's second round. It is also permitted for any type of special place. (For example, Kiwanis.) It is also played at funerals. A sonata is two movements. There is a slow movement and a fast jumpy movement. Sarah Chang born in 1980 in Philadelphia. She was a daughter of a music teacher and a composer.
