I think we just have to wait for her CD to come out.  Then we can make a fairer judgement.  She will either be a great success or a total failure when she hits the market place.

We'll try to keep up with that. I'll be anxious to see what happens. I still appreciate that she is different.

2 CD set already on order.  I think distributor is in Long Island so should be quick if that's right.

Bit pricey for 2 CD bundle ..... $34.99 to my doorstep.

I expect to hear the violinist "of the century" so the money isn't even important.  Besides, I may be the first customer.  I've been buggin Karkowska.org and Abbey Roads to get off their _______ and do something.  And I got a special e-mail when shipping had begun.

I played some of her mp3 clips on big audio and it was short, but magnificent.

Tried to post URL from YouTube but did not work. 

Go to YouTube and search on "Karkowska lightning".

You find something worth your while !!!!

 

Trick or Treat !

In a way it is impressive but in another way tiresome. I can see why you like her though. She plays as fast as lighting anyway.Surprised

I have her 2 CD set and there are places where she backs off and serenades the listener a little bit.  Her music is not for casual listening however and I only listen when the mood hits me and I'm not doing anything else.

What I do notice … big time …. is how the "museum music" according to Bach and company now sounds anemic.  Very uninteresting.  How will I ever go back ?  Do I want to ?

Her technique is laser-class and I keep hearing that too.

Not music for one and all however Smile

"Museum Music" is a term being used to sometimes make fun of the classics.  And indeed, if age is a factor, some of the music of the classical era certainly qualifies for a museum.

The term really caught on with me because one day I went to the New York City library and they had a display in the lobby of an original Bach manuscript ..... a very museum worthy exhibit.

The more I listen to Anna K. the more I am unsatisfied with the classics.

Yes, indeed.  But I hope she has the sense not to "Karkowskatize" everything she plays to the extent of overwhelming the composers' intentions.

LOL Oliver, "Karkowskatize"

I love it. The newest music terminology term.
