From 2 amateurorchestra’s I heard violinconcerto’s of Taktakshvili2 and Paganini1. Takatakshvili2 was from a studentorchestra. I discovered it too late, but I am too old for this orchestra. Paganini1 was from another orchestra, during which I had rehearsals of the Sibelius-violinconcerto.
There is something magical about great violinist dying young, like Josif Hassid, Ginette Neveu, who crashed with an airplane and violinist Michael Rabin, who died at 36. The condition of his car was perfect,as you can see in a foto, just like his playing or like the condition of his instrument. He took the rubbish through his f-holes of his violin with rice, as you can see in a foto in the book (3) : "The way they play" from author Samuel and Sada Applebaum.
Someone consider Michael Rabin as the best violinist ever (till now)in the discussion on this website.
In our machine-factory canteen we looked on a screen Netherlands (Holland)-Ivory Coast. Our second match we won with 2-1. Next match against Argentine is not important any more.
In the book "The way they play" from Samuel and Sada Applebaum here a foto of Ysaye from the violinist Eugene Fodor, who got this unknown foto of the son of Ysaye.
On my work we got Orange caps, the color of the national soccer team. I had an orange t-shirt, which I won as champion in Condorcity, because I was the best air-gun shooter, during a party in Condor city. On the front the text is: "I did it" and on the back "in condorcity www.condorcity.nl"
A colleague on my work made this foto with a digital camera
Would you like to get a Mozartkugel (-verzeignis) or violinbiscuit with the coffee during the break in the Concerthall or do you don't care and care more about the music? In the Netherlands there is a new director of the Concertgebouw (39 year) and I sent a mail with this eatingsuggestions to him. I also sent him some drinkingsuggestions like VieuxTemps-beer, Janacek-beer, Saint-Saens-wine and Bach-wine.
