Between 2th and 3th movement (2th video) I missed 3 seconds:
She is an amazing violinist and an equally kind person. I spent a few hours talking with her just a few weeks ago while she visited Parry Sound. She was here for 5 concerts and I was mesmerized by her mastery,

I'll never forget her Gluck melodie and Bach Chaconne
