Dutch violinist Frederieke Saeys winner of Concours International Long - Thibaud

March 30, 2006 04:31

Let me introduce again a Dutch violinist. 2 years ago I played the violinconcerto of Beethoven with her. She played the second part very, very slow and it was not as dull as it usually sounds, but a bit beautiful, so that the concert lasted more than 45 minutes, the length of my cassettetape. But I was a bit disappointed that she choose the silly Beethovenviolinconcerto (which I had played with another amateurorchestra before) - not his best piece, the string quartets of Beethoven are much better- and not a rare and more beautiful violinconcerto. Most of the time an amateurorchestra choose a piece and is than looking for a soloist, but this time the cello-player of her violin/cello/piano-trio played with us before and she was visiting that concert of her cellist, so the president of the committee of the amateurorchestra asked her what she wanted to play with us. Although she was second with the two-yearly national competition, she had improved her playing and recently was winner of the two-yearly international violincompetition "Concours International Long – Thibaud in Paris.

I MISS THE PREVIOUS PAGES

March 14, 2006 15:49

If you have not looked regularly to the "violin blog", you miss now entries, if the entry is not on page one. Before Robert Niles changed the website it was possible to look to previous pages with older entries. Now you have to look in the personal weblog of the bloggers to see whether people have written something new.
And that is too much work, so I liked the old way where you could look back some pages, if you had not looked on violinist.com for some days.
