Foerster violin concerto life with Petr Bernášek

Converting this movie gave problems, but finally I manage to upload it on Youtube:

Converting this movie from .mp4 with my new camera to .wmv gave problems but after converting it to .avi  with Free video converter I could make a Windows movie maker-movie and upload it on Youtube.  Somebody made this video on MP4 with my new camera on 4 -10-09 in Amsterdam in the repeatconcert of our summercourse in Bechyne, Czech Republic. Sometimes  she forgets to film the violinist Petr Bernášek from the Czech Republik with this afterconcert in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, because she made close ups of the public and from members of the orchestra, so next time I have to give better instructions. But it is much better than a standstill cameraposition and with my old camera I only could made a movie of 10 minutes on .avi, not long enough to record this concerto. This summer we played this piece also with Petr in Bechyne, Czech Peblubik with our summercourse in july 2009. I specially like like the part at 6.24 in the 1th movie when the horns began to play with the soloist.

I think this is the last time in my life that I play this wondeful unknown, but beautiful concerto, I think a Dutch premiere in the Netherlands. But I am very happy I ever play this beautiful romantic violin concerto in an orchestra.

Here some impressions of our musicsummercourse in Bechyne, Czech Republic:
