March 8, 2012 at 6:02 PMWell this is my first post here on violinist.com since I was a kid, but I just thought I would share some videos from a recent performance I did in Greenwich, CT at the Bruce Museum. :)
I still need to get around to posting the Grieg 3rd Sonata. One of these days!!
Since I perform more frequently as an accompanist that I do as a violinist, I'd also like to ask that you extend my warmest congratulations to your pianist who I believe also played beautifully.
Thank you very much!!! Many many hours in the practice room I am sure contributed to this. I have learned we must be 'very tough' on ourselves in order to make things better. I am sure we have all heard that from our teachers at one point or another, but to actually apply it is very difficult. I use all of my performances as a learning tool to improve my playing from concert to concert.

Nice work. I've listened so far to the Schumann and Kreisler tracks. Lovely tone and convincing delivery. Thanks for posting.<
Thank you! I am glad you enjoyed what you heard so far! It's always nice to have the support from fellow violinists/musicians.

You play very well. The Traumerei was really lovely. The way you play this piece it seems it was written for violin. Very convincing.

Riko Higuma is a very talented young woman, who I have had the pleasure of working with for the last 5 years. For me she is not just an accompanist but a partner. I have seen too many of my own colleagues take their pianists for granted and they end up with performances that are all over the place.
