reeling from it! Her technique must be seen/heard to be believed. Such
effortless scales, incredibly fast/smooth arpeggios, wonderful tone, you
name it!Here's her program:
.K. MERTZ Fantaisie Hongroise, Op.65
J.S BACH Chaconne from Violin Parita No.2, BWV 1004
ROLAND DYENS Saudaude No. 3
ISAAC ALBENIZ Mallorca; Sevilla
WILLIAM WALTON Five Bagatelles
CARLO DOMENICONI I Qing ( written for Xuefei Yang)
ALBERTO GINASTERA Sonata, Op.47
I thought her Bach was a tad underpowered, but she played it beautifully.
The Domeniconi and Ginastera were mind blowing. What made the performance
even more amazing is that while filing her calluses earlier in the day, she
cracked the one on her left hand pinky, causing it to bleed rather heavily.
She then super-glued it together and played anyway! If this in any way
affected her performance, it certainly wasn't noticeable from the 6th row!
Be sure to see her if she plays near you.
