I just realized there hasn't been any Igudesman & Joo in this thread.

 

The last one is piano humor, but it's probably my favorite of their sketches.

So it was, and that was a great one! Mea culpa -- I skimmed the thread quickly before posting and missed it because Igudesman's face was half covered in the preview image.

If you search for the conductor's name (Joseph R. Olefirowicz) on YouTube, there's a lot more of the same kind of conducting!

When your teacher decides to cure your stage fright... 

 

 

Let's face it, once you've done that on stage - nothing should bother you!

My teacher knows Aleksey Igudesman. Here's a picture of him teaching at her summer school one year.

I wonder if this violin could be a refection of my personality... nah, just feels like my body.

I had (past tense . . . had) one of those stands.  Hated it.  I would get it to picture 6 above, and then I would wonder why I had it. 

As a side note, I really like the old reliable Manhasset stands.  But for a good, light weight mobile one, I’ve got a Peak Music Stand SMS-40.  It’s mostly plastic, but sturdy, and unlike the metal foldable ones, it’s easy to set up & take down.  I used it when I traveled to participate in the weekly ensemble I was with—and never had any problems with it.

oh these are the worst.  I finally picked up a solid metal stand and left this one at the local music school.. sorta felt bad about it..maybe someone can get use out of it.  guess itll make a good travel stand for someone.
