Wow!  What an awesome style.  Aggression as needed to make the point but then subtle quiet emotion.  Always in total control.

Barry, I know some might think you are overwhelmed by both the musical and physical beauty of this performer but I have also observed your growth as a serious patron of the arts!

(I wish I had started at an earlier age!)

When you come to a fork in the road, take it.

Barry... This was great!  I thoroughly enjoyed it.  She is quite amazing.  I like many things about her and her style.

Thanks for posting.

Now that's a lady who can play and has style too. I like it. Great post Mr. B

I had to check her out as my playing partner said "You have to watch this! Barry posted it and he likes her playing!"

 

So I did...

 

Thanks

I like the way that it seems that she "studies" or takes in music.  Her Attitude and respect for the music.  Her technique had me mesmerized.  Flexibility and precision.  Hills is still my gal, but this gal.. Well I am commuted to buy her music.

ha ha Barry.. no, I was pretty sure when you said it was good stuff that it would be.  I waited until the right moment to watch and I was enchanted and motivated by this young woman's thoughts on playing classical.  And I was able to follow her thoughts on playing classical music, and  how there is a bit you can do with it but still a strictness to it.  And then her thoughts on Schindler's List.  Very very nice.  My only beef with the "Tango" is that I only wanted to see her... I wasn't in the mood for the artist video.  (it was good, Just I wanted to see her bowing and fingering on the whole song).

I am further inspired to learn and learn so that I can play 100-200 year old classics.  Someday.

Everyday that I wake up a violinist and practice, I am closer to playing my dreams.
