Earlier I had played the 3th,4th and 5th violin concerto of Mozart. 130 km from my home an amateurorchestra played the 2nd violin concerto of Mozart. I could join as 2nd violinist and hereunder fragments of the concert on 1 april 2012. Recently I discovered that the soloist Lisette Carlebur (16) had won a youth competition. Here the final with the 1th Schumann sonata:

3 months frozen left shoulder

January 22, 2013 08:08

Like Vengerov I also have had shoulderinjuries, 2 times a frozen shoulder. In 2008 my right shoulder. I skated on artificial ice with a icehockey shoulderprotector. I fell and thought : everything is ok, because I have enough protection. 2 weeks later I skated 200km on nature ice with a little pain in that shoulder in 10 ½ hours, but a month later I hardly could move that shoulder. A lot of pain, but I adapted my shoulderrest, so my violin was in a more vertical position so I could reach easier the Ging, because I hardly could lift my right arm. In the beginning I only could bow with my right pulse and moving my left arm with violin to the right and the left. Full recovery took a year. I decided never to skate on artificial ice in my life any more. But last januari 2012 there was nature ice so I had to skate. But suddenly I fell on my left arm. I had pulseprotectors, a downhillsuit with elbow- and shoulderprotection and my icehocheyshoulderprotection, so I thought this time I was even better protected, but still had the feeling that my left shoulder was not 100%. But playing in orchestra’s and having lessons was no problem. In the summer I visit my physiotherapist and he said that I needed perhaps 8 treatments to get the shoulder 100%. During that time I used my shoulders a lot as postman and with some amateurorchestra’s which started in september. My shoulder deteriorated and at that time I had 20 physiotreatments. During violin playing I got pain, so I played often half rehearsals. During a 2nd violin group rehaersal for the Sacre of Stravinsky I played the whole evening while my left elbow rested on a table in a classroom to dimish the pain. That was too much for my shoulder. The next day it was frozen and very painfull and I had to cancel the Sacre which I will perhaps never play again in my life. But now the recovery is much faster. The exorotation is now 74 degrees and must be 90 for a healthy shoulder. I could play 30 and 40 minutes, but had problems to get my left elbow good under the violin. Last week I could play a whole reheral of an orchestra without pain.
