The guy playing from around 15:20 is a friend of mine and colleague from my former orchestra in Sweden, Malmo Symphony Orchestra. His name is Xiao-Ming Ma, third concert master in that orchestra.

Funny enough, they still have my picture there after over 4 years. LOL

Wow, Oz, what a cool video, thank's for sharing that. You can sure tell it's China, Mao Tse Tung's picture on everthing there.

 

Pierre, you mean the guy playing the solo piece at 15:20, he's your friend ?

I'm gonna send this vid to my friend in China, she live's in Taiyuan City, the Capital of Shanxi Province, China, which is southwest of Beijing. I don't think she will be able to open it on Youtube, due to Govt. control of the internet, she can't open anything I send her on Youtube, so I'll have to translate it and send it on Youku, the Chinese version of Youtube.

I see her almost everyday, i've been helping her learn to speak English for the past 15 mo's. We've become very good friend's. She say's "I'm crazy about English".

I got a kick out of Isaac telling the one violinist to play it like you would sing it, with feeling, funny because that's the way i've alway's played music. I imagine i'm singing the song or listening to another person sing.

He probably would have been a great guy, unfortunately he passed away in Sept. 22, 2001, the day after my birthday.    cry
