dd is learning to play the violin and loves listening to Vanessa Mae and anything violiny like Chi mai. We have got a lot of driving over the summer holidays and I'd like to buy her some more cds for the car. (we all choose a couple to put in and I am sick of dds chill out albums!)

As you might be able to tell I'm a musical dunce grin. Can you recommend some cds - both classical and more modern with predominantly violin music. Thanks

Stéphane Grappelli is fantastic- violin jazz! A lot of classical composers wrote violin concertos, like Mozart and Elgar, for example, or Vivaldi. Nigel Kennedy is another good name to watch out for.

Oh lovely, thank you I hadn't heard of Stéphane Grappelli

Favorite violin concertos are the Mendelsohn, Tchaikovsky and Brahms.

Also Saint Saens 'Danse Macabre'

(I make no apologies for any spelling mistakes here grin)
