  • Whoa!

  • Hello guys!

  • Welcome to another episode of TwoSet Violin!

  • Ayy!

  • Today, we will be counting down the 5 most difficult,

  • insane,

  • violin pieces that Ling Ling can play,

  • but us mere mortals will die trying to play.

  • But!

  • Before that,

  • new designs!

  • TwoSet premium bomber jacket!

  • Mm-hmm. And look at what's behind,

  • - guess what you're not doing! - *gasps*

  • If you buy this,

  • you're officially part of the TwoSet Academy,

  • the school of talented people that practice,

  • not that fake talent stuff on mainstream TV.

  • We only accept an honest day of practicing,

  • 40 hours a day.

  • - That's right. - Oh, also...

  • Grey sweatpants.

  • Look at that, we're wearing the same thing!

  • Oh, look at that.

  • - It says what you should be doing right now. - Yeah, that's right.

  • Anyway, it's cool sweatpants,

  • check it out on our website.

  • Gotta throw a butt.

  • Thanks, shoutout to our apparel team,

  • everyone's worked so hard to get this out,

  • this is one of our most ambitious projects,

  • especially with products, so...

  • Thanks for the support, check it out.

  • Alright!

  • We literally sat here for 20 minutes being like,

  • how do we even order this from no. 5 hardest

  • to no. 1 hardest.

  • - They're all in their own right, like, difficult. - Yeah.

  • - And there's other pieces too, - Yeah.

  • - even to pick these five. - Yeah.

  • - So, just to be clear, this is just the five we chose. - Yeah.

  • There's a lot more difficult pieces out there as well.

  • I will say though,

  • because a lot of difficult pieces are like,

  • not that famous...

  • - That's true. - But in the violin world,

  • these are the five pieces that are

  • - famous for being very hard as well. - Yes, exactly.

  • Alright, so on number 5,

  • we have the Bach Chaconne.

  • Now, it might not seem...

  • ...to be technically as difficult as the other

  • four that's coming up,

  • which are actually insanely difficult, technically.

  • But Bach Chaconne is on this list,

  • because it is...

  • - ...like, one of the Holy Grail pieces. - Mm-hmm.

  • It's very long, it's Bach, which means...

  • ...musically, there's a lot of um,

  • expectation, to your interpretation.

  • You can't just...

  • ...show off with a bunch of left hand pizz,

  • like there's a...

  • ...certain sincerity that has to come across in the music.

  • And not just that, but you're basically sustaining...

  • ...this epic flow,

  • this music, for like 15 minutes, and...

  • It's just hard to not start making all your chords like,

  • crunchy,

  • - after 15 minutes. - And it...and it's also hard to...

  • - make it sound different, - Yeah.

  • - it's gonna sound the same same. - Yeah.

  • Without going into too much detail,

  • I'll just...wanna demonstrate a few passages.

  • - Dude, it sounds like you're like...you're like... - I can never do that bit...!

  • Alright, the thing with the Bach is like...

  • there's so many awkward string crossings,

  • it just sucks.

  • And maybe I just didn't practice, but...

  • Oh my god.

  • Listen to Hilary play that bit.

  • That bit!

  • Hodo you know how hard that is?

  • It sounds so simple,

  • - it's because Hilary is making it sound easy, by the way. - It's like she's playing on a piano,

  • like every note's just...

  • - Yeah. - But on a string, we got all these like...

  • The whole piece is just like that,

  • there's all these uncomfortable chords,

  • but musically you can't show it.

  • - You can't show it. - It just...should sound like music.

  • Yeah, you can't let your technical failures

  • affect the music.

  • - Yeah. - I think that's what's challenging about Bach.

  • What's this?

  • Thatthat bar, 244.

  • Every note has to be even.

  • Oh my god.

  • Alright, number 4!

  • - Ehh... - Erlkönig!

  • Yeah, Erlkönig!

  • - Ohh...again? - In case...

  • - The famous recording on YouTube is Hilary. - Yeah.

  • We're not just picking all Hilary for any reason.

  • It's just a coincidence!

  • It's just a coincidence, guys.

  • - How do you even phrase that? - Okay.

  • Did you hear the phrase with the...

  • - ...evenness, and that psycho left hand pizz. - Left hand pizz.

  • Oh I wanna try it, I really wanna try it.

  • - I've never actually read this music. - Yeah.

  • To be fair, we're sight-reading,

  • - we have not even dared to learn these pieces. - Yeah, yeah, exactly!

  • How do you do that?

  • Oh!

  • Nah, you messed it up,

  • 'cause you need to left hand pizz.

  • Probably in second position.

  • Ahh!

  • Oh, wow.

  • What was that bit?

  • What?!

  • Like that?

  • Yeah!

  • - Dude, my hands are hurting. - It sounds so crunchy.

  • 'Cause there's so many chords!

  • - We'll do it together, I think it'll be easier. - Alright.

  • Okay.

  • Dude...

  • I think I just pulled a tendon.

  • What is this?!

  • Dude, there's two lines!

  • - You know things are getting serious when violin - Yeah, two lines.

  • becomes two lines in the music.

  • Can we hear that?

  • I can't even read the music anymore.

  • I don't even know where we're at, we're just...

  • Oh, here.

  • Dude, the dynamics...

  • Holy s***...

  • How does she make it sound melodically singing,

  • when you're rhythmically playing so many strings?

  • This just keeps going!

  • Alright, guys!

  • A violin has a bridge, we're not meant to be playing...

  • ...three strings at the same time,

  • and make it sound so beautifully...

  • ...elegant.

  • - Dude. - I'm terrified.

  • How is this only number 4 on the list?

  • I think we messed it up.

  • Dude! What...

  • Dude, look at this bar.

  • - Oh, yeah... - Alright, you do top line, I do bottom line.

  • What the hell...!

  • - We can't even play it with two violins. - Oh, god.

  • Number 3 on the list!

  • Ysaÿe 6!

  • It ain't so "Ysaÿe"!

  • (both) Ahhh!!!!

  • You learned this, right?

  • Why don't you just perform it?

  • Nah, nah.

  • I tried to learn it for like a week,

  • and after a week of defeat,

  • - Yeah. - I was like, "You know what?

  • Think I'll go back to the...

  • Play the easier ones first."

  • Okay.

  • 4 mil subs, Brett plays Ysaÿe 6.

  • Let's do it guys!

  • Ysaÿe 6!

  • Ysaÿe 6 for 4 mil subs!

  • - Alright, let's listen to it. - Yeah, let's listen to it first.

  • The hell?

  • Oh, man.

  • Dude, just look at this music.

  • Why is there...so much black?

  • Well it means we're losing our vision.

  • - We're seeing double notes by accident. - Ohh...

  • - Okay look, I can play the first few bars. - It's all double stops!

  • Yeah...!

  • This is all I got for like the first week,

  • I was like, "Yeah! So good, I can do this!"

  • Doable.

  • Oh s***, I forgot.

  • S***.

  • What?

  • Oh.

  • - Ohh. - Yeah, I can see why I gave up.

  • And this is the opening!

  • - Yeah... - This is like...

  • Bam! Right in your face!

  • I remember I played Ysaÿe 3,

  • and one thing I noticed with Ysaÿe is

  • there's always these places where it's like...

  • ...double stops, but it needs to sound so flowy.

  • Yeah...!

  • Yeah...

  • Oh, no, no, I remember this part, this...

  • This is a...

  • - Yeah. - And then...

  • But your hands can't even catch up.

  • - Like it's meant to sound like... - Yeah...

  • Sounds...

  • Except it's so hard!

  • - Oh, yeah. - Oh nice!

  • Dude, you can play!

  • - Can't do it now. - 6 mil!

  • - 6 mil subs! - Nah, nah, nah, I can't do it now!

  • - You can play! You can play! - Nah, nah, nah, nah, I'm out.

  • Next one!

  • Because if you play this,

  • - it's the last summer you gonna have. - Yeah...

  • It's gonna end you.

  • Yeah.

  • Dude, your pinky like choked.

  • It's like, "Is it my turn?"

  • Dude, whenever you need to pizz

  • and play melody at the same time,

  • - it's like... - It's like, you need to

  • - You're like two gears moving. - Yeah.

  • - Dude, he's closing his eyes. - Yeah.

  • Dude, he's like...

  • "Just a walk in a park."

  • Huh?!

  • Did you hear that high pizz?

  • So much respect for that.

  • Words cannot even describe...

  • Yeah, that's it.

  • This is literally how we feel.

  • How much...

  • ...hours and talent and just honest work there is in that?

  • That's like Olympic level.

  • This is like Olympic level stuff, yeah.

  • If this video gets 60k likes, Brett will perform it.

  • No...!

  • Bro...!

  • You'll never see me show up in a video again.

  • "What's Brett doing?"

  • "He's stressing, he's practicing!'

  • - Dude I think I just scratched my violin. - Dude you just scratched your violin.

  • What the f*** is that?

  • You can't!

  • That's 7th position A string!

  • Ohh!!!

  • Dude, who the hell does that?

  • That is so uncomfortable.

  • Who...

  • How...why did humans decide that

  • this was a good idea anyway?

  • I don't know, I just...

  • I'm just questioning why I chose violin as a career.

  • Bro, that's...

  • Can we just...
