Rudolf Koelman http://www.koelman.ch/ , violinist.com member http://www.violinist.com/directory/bio.cfm?member=Koelman and Heifetz pupil had won the public price in the Netherlands for his cd of the 1th + 2th violin concerto of Nicolo Paganini. I helped him, because I got 8 people from an amateurorchestra who vote on his cd, so now I hope this Heifetz pupil will come again to Holland to play a Paganini violin concerto with this amateurorchestra. Rudolf Koleman stays ahead in the public price for Janine Jansen who was nominated for her Beethoven/Britten cd. But of course she also won a Edison because she sells better.
Here Rudolf plays the 3th movement of the 2th violin concerto "La Campanella" of Nicolo Paganini in het Kurhaus in The Hague:
Here the cd version of the same 3th movement 2th Paganini vc:
Very cool video!! He plays so well this Paganini Campanella!
Notice how happy everyone looks...
The orchestral violinists are all standing. Is that common there? I've only seen small chamber groups do that, not orchestras accompanying a soloist.
This orchestra is indeed a small chamber orchestra without a conductor, since the last one is gone about 10 years ago. Their name is Amsterdam Sinfonietta http://www.sinfonietta.nl/ Another orchestra on the cd is a normal regional sitting symphony orchestra. Their name is http://www.orkestvanhetoosten.nl/nl/ that means ""the orchestra form the east", but they use their international name " The Netherlands Symphony orchestra".
