Best known for his numerous operas, and wrote in a generally melodic style.
The piece was written for solo violin and orchestra. It is a symphonic intermezzo from the opera Thaïs by Massenet.
It is considered to be one of the great encore pieces; world-class violin soloists such as Joshua Bell, Sarah Chang, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Itzhak Perlman, and Maxim Vengerov have performed the piece as soloists with major orchestras throughout the world. The Méditation has been transcribed for violin and piano and for other instruments as well. The cellist Yo-Yo Ma and pianist Kathryn Stott have recorded a version for cello and piano.
ViolinAwesomeness2000 I love this piece! I';m glad I can play most of the songs labeled "Hard". I mean, I';ve been playing for eight years. Here';s a tip: Play the 8th note in bar 5 as a harmonic in 4th position. It just touches up the piece and adds an extra ring to the note.
