Visiting Patelson Music House

November 24, 2006 20:33

My teacher asked me to go to Patelson Music House to pick up a copy of the Hrimaly Scale Studies and Whistler's "Introducing the Positions" book.

What an amazing store. This store is located behind Carnegie Hall, and is chocked filled with music. Inside I overhead a conversation between two (I'm guessing violinists) people discussing the merits of Heifetiz's interpretation of a certain piece.

I said to my girlfriend who came with me that I hope this store never closes down.

'Heifetz As I knew Him' by Ayke Agus

November 24, 2006 20:21

A funny thing happened at Thanksgiving last night. I was invited to have turkey with my upstairs neighbors. They are married and are both professional musicians. One's a professional violinist, and the other is a French horn player. Anyhow, I was scanning the books on their bookshelf and saw a copy of "Heifetz As I knew him" by Ayke Agus. I told them that I read the book over the summer (based on the recommendation of a Violinist.com member). And they then told me that they know her. My neighbors have actually started their own chamber orchestra and Ayke Agus is a member! Small world!

This was almost as cool as my meeting a member of the Guarneri String quartet at my church!
