The Week in Reviews, Op. 147: Mayu Kishima, Baiba Skride, Jeanne-Marie Conquer

September 5, 2016, 8:41 PM · In an effort to promote the coverage of live violin performance, each week presents links to reviews of notable concerts and recitals around the world.

Mayu Kishima won the $100,000 First Prize at the inaugural Shanghai Isaac Stern International Violin Competition, performing Chausson's "Poeme" and the Shostakovich in the finals.

Mayu Kishima editor Laurie Niles will post her interview with Kishima later this week. If you missed any of Laurie's coverage from Shanghai, you can find it all archived on our Shanghai Competition page.

Baiba Skride performed Mozart's 5th Violin Concerto with the BBC Symphony Orchestra.

Jeanne-Marie Conquer performed Boulez's Anthèmes II at the BBC Proms.

Please support music in your community by attending a concert or recital whenever you can!
