Strings with wings

Ev​ery recital, con​cert or show has a star — and this evening was no dif​fer​ent, al​though we had to wait un​til the very end to hear her. I am speak​ing, of course, of the 1st Prize win​ner in the Group B cat​e​gory, 16-year-old Yada Lee. She was calm, self-pos​sessed, did not seem the slight​est bit ner​vous — in fact, she seemed to be hav​ing a grand time. As well she might. Her per​for​mance was, sim​ply put, stun​ning. She of​fered very heart​felt ren​di​tions of Max Bruch’s Vi​o​lin Con​certo in G Mi​nor (1st Move​ment) and De​bussy’s Vi​o​lin Sonata in G Mi​nor (1st Move​ment)...

An Evening With the Three B’s and Top Thai Music Students

Because big name soloists seldom perform in Bangkok, I attend a lot of student performances, and performances of both Thai and foreign teachers and professionals who have not made it into the international arena. Last night at the Goethe-Institut’s auditorium, in a violin and piano recital titled “The three B’s,” I again experienced how pleasant and rewarding an evening of well-played music can be...
