I live in Honolulu, Hawaii and it is rare for a violinist of high caliber to come to Hawaii and play with the Honolulu Symphony (although we have had previous instrumentalists like Midori, Sarah Chang, Yo-Yo ma, Han na Chang, and i believe Gil Shaham).
Sarah Chang has played here a previous 3 times, playing the Tchaivkosky at age 12, Brahms at 17, and Goldmark at around 20 I believe. All those performance have been outstanding especially Goldmark. (please note that i was a toddler when she was playing the Tchaiv. and the Brahms) I was just wondering if anyone heard or seen her perform the Shostakovich. I know she is going to do some concerts and i believe a cd recording with the prokofiev vio. conc. (i think but i might be mistaken) I wanted to know how she did on the Shostakovich.
I love this violin concerto and i really appreciate Sarah for her focus on "2nd level" concertos such as Dvorak, Strauss, Goldmark, and so on. The concertos that are not played often. She performs this concerto in April or May as the season finale. (i want to know if i should buy tickets all the way in the front or just get regular seats) cause i heard there are only 50 or so seats left in the front section! THANKS!
