Gil Shaham and me!Click below to watch Episode 2 of "Gilharmonic on Violinist.com" -- the happiest hour of live violin talk online, hosted by violinist
Our guest artist this week is violinist and former Sphinx laureate Elena Urioste, who will join us from her flat in London. During the pandemic, Elena took requests and recorded a music video every day for 88 days, performing with her husband Tom Poster. Their selections ranged from Ravel to "Baby Shark" to a Mary Poppins medley - with many arrangements by Tom. (Click here to see their #UriPosteJukeBox videos.) She and violinist Melissa White also are the founders of a yoga program for musicians called Intermission, and in August she will host a virtual Chamber Music by the Sea. Elena and Tom will perform ‘Un Sonnet d’Amour’ from Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s Petite Suite de Concert, Op. 77.
Our two master class students include:
Vaishi Sharma, 14, from Aurora, Ill, a student of Ann Montzka Smelser. She has played in the Elgin Youth Symphony and next year will play in the Chicago Youth Symphony. She will play the first movement "Largo" from Henry Eccles' Sonata in G minor.
Elizabeth Wei, who just finished her freshman year at the University of Southern California's Thornton School of Music, studying with Lina Bahn. She will play an except from Max Bruch's "Scottish Fantasie."
Hope to see you there!
