June 9, 2012 Performance

June 11, 2012 at 5:16 PM

Hello once again! :)

I just finished uploading a few clips from a concert I did Saturday night at the Dimenna Center in NYC. It was a joint recital between me and fellow friend/colleague/ member Nate Robinson. I will post my own videos along with the Moszkowski duo I uploaded to my channel. (If Nate would like to upload his own solo performance from Saturday I will leave that to him!)

Anyways, I hope you enjoy!

Henryk Wieniawski Romance from the 2nd Violin Concerto in D minor, Op. 22

Henryk Wieniawski Souvenir du Moscou, Op. 6

Johannes Brahms Hungarian Dance No. 2 (arr. J. Joachim)

Moritz Moszkowski Suite for 2 violins, Op. 71 III. Lento assai

Thanks so much for posting this. You and Nate Robinson are both great violinists. The video gives us a nice view of your posture, hand positions, bowing technique which are good "textbook" examples for amateurs like me to follow. I wasn't familiar with the Moszkowski suite so I appreciated hearing that.

One detail -- who is the excellent pianist on this recording? I think she deserves credit for her contribution.

Cheers, Paul

Thank you so much for the compliment Paul. It is much appreciated! I am glad these videos can be used as a tool for yourself and your own playing.

The Moszkowski Suite is definitely overlooked today (along with a bunch of other duo works), it was at the advice of my teacher Mr. Aaron Rosand, to close the concert with this particular piece. I actually heard him perform this work with his assistant a few years ago, and really fell in love with it!

The pianist for the Moszkowski is Li-Pi Hsieh aka Nate's mother. :). My pianist for the other solo works is Riko Higuma who I have performed with countless times now.

Wow, Nate sure did get the right genes. She's terrific!

And I can certainly understand how you could fall in love with any piece of music after hearing Aaron Rosand play it! I watched his videos of the Franck Sonata and I got a lot of ideas for bowings. It must be amazing to study with him, but of course one must earn that privilege. (If you can point me to a place where I could buy his Franck Sonata videos on DVD instead of watching them on YouTube I would be grateful.)

Awesome, thanks! I was sure I looked at Amazon before but must have missed it. What a recital that must have been.
