I met Mozart and new girl-friend in Wien + a new car in Budapest

July 31, 2006 03:58

Hi. On holiday I met Mozart himself who was promoting his Kugeln. Also I met my new girl-friend.


I think Andre Rieu would like this foto of the Walseking of the golden statue of Johann Strauss. It was very difficult to take a foto without Japanese or Amerikan tourists who were swarming around this foto-populair statue. More statues of composers later.

In Budapest I first sat in a Trabant in a park with statues from the communist period. Later on I drove in a real Trabant from the owner of a bar behind a railwaystation near the Balatonlake

Tetzlaff plays Mozart 2,3,4 and 2th Joachim

July 12, 2006 04:06

Last sunday I was with my parents in the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam (during the world soccer final, but Holland/Orange was not in the final) and we heard the violinconcerto's 2,3,4 of Mozart. The day before he had played Mozart 1,5 and Symfonia concertante. I new all these 3 violinconcerto's, which I had heard during the semi's of the Elisabeth competition. I have played number 5 with soloist and number 4 during 2 rehearsals (one rehearsal with the soloist). Soon I will play number 3. My parents only know number 4 and hear 2 and 3 for the first time.
As usual I gave Christian Tetzlaff 10 rare violinconcerto's and the sheetmusic/cd of sonates opus 22 and opus 53 of Henri Vieuxtemps. I said that I had seen on internet that he had played Joachim2 opus 11 "Hungarian". I asked whether he had enough chance to play this rarity. That was no problem, he told. 15 times till now and first in 48 minutes and now in 40 minutes. This winter he will play it in ROTTERDAM!!! I will be there to hear this rarity.
I told I also had the sheetmusic of the 1th violinconcerto of Joachim opus3. He also had it, but, just like the 3th his opinion these were second rank and the 2th was the best. He will soon RECORD this 2th violinconcerto of Joseph Joachim!! So after the Naxos-recording of the 3th violinconcerto of Joseph Joachim of Takako Nashazaki and recordings of Aaron Rosand, Rachel Barton and Elmar Oliveira of the 2th Joachim, he will make the 4th version of this concerto on cd. It is a pity that no one had recorded the 1th violinconcerto of Joseph Joachim (opus 3), so you could compare all 3 violinconcerto's of Joseph Joachim, just like you can compare all 5 Mozartconcerto's, all recorded by Tetzlaff.

foto's from Bruton

July 7, 2006 03:41

I played in May with the amateurorchestra Capita Selecta the violinconcerto of Barber with soloist Jurjen Soeting in Bruton and in the cathedral of Bath in England. Here a foto of me during an rehearsal of the orchestra in the memorial hall (with the names of the death of the 1th and 2th World War of Bruton on the drak wooden wainscot on the wall, as you can see on the first foto)of the highschool of Bruton. It was quite cold, so I played with a coat. Some one else took some pictures, during a free-nonrehearsal day of a statue of Mozart and put it on internet with some other foto's ofhis/her time in Bruton. I have not seen this statue in England, but Mozart also plays violin with his coat on.
