Paganini, Nicolo 3th mvt 2th vc Edisonklassiek 2010 Publieksprijs Rudolf Koelman

June 21, 2010 at 5:21 PM

Rudolf Koelman , member 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:

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  Another orchestra on the cd is a normal regional sitting symphony orchestra. Their name is that means  ""the orchestra form the east", but they use their international name " The Netherlands Symphony orchestra".
