March 8, 2012 at 6:02 PM

Well this is my first post here on violinist.com since I was a kid, but I just thought I would share some videos from a recent performance I did in Greenwich, CT at the Bruce Museum. :)

I still need to get around to posting the Grieg 3rd Sonata. One of these days!!

Playlist:

Fritz Kreisler: Liebesfreud, Liebesleid, Schon Rosmarin
Maurice Ravel: Tzigane
Robert Schumann: Traumerei:

Nice work. I've listened so far to the Schumann and Kreisler tracks. Lovely tone and convincing delivery. Thanks for posting.

You play very well. The Traumerei was really lovely. The way you play this piece it seems it was written for violin. Very convincing.

Since I perform more frequently as an accompanist that I do as a violinist, I'd also like to ask that you extend my warmest congratulations to your pianist who I believe also played beautifully.

Thank you very much!!! Many many hours in the practice room I am sure contributed to this. I have learned we must be 'very tough' on ourselves in order to make things better. I am sure we have all heard that from our teachers at one point or another, but to actually apply it is very difficult. I use all of my performances as a learning tool to improve my playing from concert to concert.

Thank you! I am glad you enjoyed what you heard so far! It's always nice to have the support from fellow violinists/musicians.

Riko Higuma is a very talented young woman, who I have had the pleasure of working with for the last 5 years. For me she is not just an accompanist but a partner. I have seen too many of my own colleagues take their pianists for granted and they end up with performances that are all over the place.
