Violin Adventures with Rachel Barton Pine
Episode 75: To Memorize or Not To Memorize, That is the Question

Episode 75: To Memorize or Not To Memorize, That is the Question

 

Upcoming Events: May 25 – Six Bach Violin Concertos for the Montreal Chamber Music Festival, May 30 – Bartok Concerto No. 2 with the Gottingen Symphony in Germany, June 1 – recital with pianist Matthew Hagle in Montpelier, Vermont (sonatas by Beethoven, Mohammed Fairouz, and Strauss, and lullabies by Brahms, Ysaye, Rebecca Clarke and William Grant Still)

 

Inquiries from my Inbox:  A student at a master class asked, “What is your favorite time of day to practice?”

 

Random Musical Thought: If children dress as ballerinas to attend the ballet, why don’t they dress as concert violinists to attend the symphony?

 

Main Topic: A conversation with harpsichordist Paul Cienniwa about the pros and cons of performing with and without sheet music. To learn more about Paul, please visit www.paulcienniwa.com

 

Total playing time: 00:51:59

Inquiries from my Inbox:  Bob asks, “Would it peeve you if, at a classical concert, during a pause, someone shouted out, "Play "Devil Went Down to Georgia!"”

 

Random Musical Thought: Could we have a photos section (silent and flash-free) at classical concerts?
