Yesterday I got the orchestramusic of the second violin from the 1th Celloconcerto from Henri Vieuxtemps op.46. We gonna play this piece on 1 april 2006. From a cd booklet of violinist Alexander Markov who played Vieuxtemps 2th, 4th and 5th violinconcerto's with a foto of the composer Henri Vieuxtemps and the lit and the papers of a bottle Belgian Vieux Temps-beer, I made this T-shirt:
This grey T-shirt is from my student orchestra. Because of that color the scan is rather vague. It is from a gala in full dress with the theme “Conquest of paradise”. On the frontside the slogan is: From the concert of life Sempre Crescendo has the program. Normally the expression is: “From the concert of life nobody has the program.” It means: nobody knows how your life is going. So funny expression, I thought.
These are 2 scans of t-shirts of amateurorchestra's I was on tour in Prague and in France, some years ago.
Yesterday I played again Ernest Chausson with soloist. This weekend is the concert. The highpoint is when the soloist played the high note of the soloist in bar 96. Here is a part of the first page of the second violin:
A violinfriend who visitised a concert of Joshua Bell in the Concertgebouw some years ago –Joshua played Barber- got a autograph on a cd. He made a colorcopy for my and I found it again and made a scan on my work specially for Syndey Menees and because I have a serie of cd’s with autograpfhs on it.
Although I don’t try to get Janine Jansen to a tv-show, like a sort of Dutch Oprah Winfry (they sent all Oprah’s shows often on Dutch television) I sent her and 17 other violinists with the name Santa with a Santa poem the cd of Ysaye with the violinconcerto of Ysaye (see last entry). I think most violinists (most of them I have played violinconcerto’s with amateurorchestra’s) will realize that I was behind it and that I was Santa. This day a colleague said: I found some pictures of “your sweetheart”. I have some scans of them. Isn’t she lovely? Xxx. Perhaps next concert of her I can give the flowers and kisses (perhaps you can manage the same with Joshua Bell, Sydney Menees?)But she has already a friend, Julian Rachlin, who is a good professional violinplayer (I am a poor violinist), and I am bad in soaking off and I don’t like to stoke/disturb in a good marriage/relation. But it is always a pleasure to see/hear her.
