Wedding violin music can be a lovely addition to your wedding. For example, who can deny the elegance of Massenet's Meditation?
While a violin can certainly be played as a solo instrument, it is most often accompanied by another instrument such as a piano, organ, harp, guitar or with other string instruments. The reason is obvious: it creates a fuller and more complete sound.
Wedding Violin in CD/MP3 Format
- I Do, by violinist Gary Schnitzer, contains a terrific mix of 16 traditional-sounding classical and pop songs and features the violin joined by guitar, string quartet, piano and bass. Nice!
- Though not specifically a wedding CD, if you are looking for a Christian hymns CD for your wedding played by the violin and piano, consider The Lord Is My Shepherd by violinist David Kim which features 22 uniquely arranged songs.
Wedding Violin in Printed Form
- The Violinist's Wedding Album for Violin and Accompaniment CD. It's a book to consider, because as the title says, it comes with an accompaniment CD. Great for indoor and outdoor weddings since the music that is to be played along with the violin is supplied on the CD! At 90 pages long, it contains an excellent song selection of 22 well-known classical pieces often used for weddings. Also, Sheet Music Plus provides a "look inside" feature which allows you to view a couple of pages up close so you can see the arrangement and get an idea of the degree of difficulty, etc. In addition, there are even sound links that allow you to listen to excerpts of 3 actual arrangements that are in the book.
- 37 Violin Pieces You Like To Play is another book containing violin and piano arrangements, many of which are appropriate to a wedding. Once again, Sheet Music Plus provides the "look inside" feature to view a couple of pages up close.
You can find other instrument-specific wedding music by going to Instrumental Wedding Music.
