I have a cold and the mouth-breathing made this clip too gross to post without swapping out the audio from earlier practice 🤭 But I wanted to continue the vibrato exercises from last week – now, transitioning the motion from shakers to the violin!
I like to do a kid-friendly version of the Galamian sliding and centering exercise. The idea is the same – we start with big gestures and gradually decrease the range of motion until the thumb and finger “catch” on the neck – but all motions are correct and encouraged. Wild, big, floppy, fast, slow: it’s all good in this warm-up. The idea is to get the arm used to shaking while holding the instrument loosely in the hand, never gripping.
Adventures from yesterday part two! My friend and photographer (the face behind so many of my awesome pictures!) @profess2000 and I enjoying the ballet! There were three world premiere works performed, including corresponding original scores played by a live pit orchestra, and everything was stunningly beautiful. There are so many times I wished I lived in a place that had more culture. Vegas is very “razzle dazzle”, which is fun... for a while. No matter what I’m occupying my time with musically at the moment, though, it’s classical music and the creative scene that are most deeply true to me. I’m so looking forward to getting back to working on my own original music after the craziness of gigs lately. I’ve been talking a lot about it and not delivering! I promise, soon you will hear it. Much love from Seattle 😘🤗😊🎻🎼🎶❤️ #remindme#neverforgetyourroots#classicalmusic#originalmusic#ballet#seattle#culture#hippieatheart#violinist#violin#singersongwriter#adventurist#thefishgottobebackinthewater#happykrista

Happiest of birthdays to @sashaparfenova! I’m so grateful to be able to create alongside this brilliant mind while she is Artist in Residence with my publishing company Femoire. Go check out her work if you haven’t already - SashaParfenova.com, and think about commissioning her next time you want to have your album cover/statement piece/score cover be the most intricate, maximalist explosion of the natural world you could imagine. 🌺🌸🌹💐🌺🌸🌹💐🌺🌸🌹💐🌺🌸🌺💐💐🌺💐🌺💐🌺🌸🌹💐🌺🌸🌺🌹💐🌺🌸💐🌺🌸🌹💐
مؤلِمٌ أن تواجه عاصفةً ضخمةً وحدك..لا تستطيع مُقاومتَها..ولا تستطيع أن تطلب المساعدة من أحد...تَتسمّر في مكانك...تواجهها ما استطعت دون أن تستخدم حتى حقك في السقوط..لانه هنالك أحبه يستندُون عليك !!! #yannisyria#music#yanni#artist#violin#violinist
Allison and Ashley.
My little sisters preparing for their violin recital.
Proud of you girls.
If I get back into music, then there's gonna be a lot of arguing about who needs to be quiet while the other's practicing or recording songs.
A beautiful evenfall with an amazing violine player Hanka.
Hanka is the violinist of Inflagranti #inflagrantimusic and Hromosvod. I love the more than beautiful light we had.

This video clip is Claude Debussy's violin sonata which I played in Germany last year on 100th memorial after his death.
He was highly interested in Japanese art such as Ukiyo-e prints.
The cover of the La mer (i.e. The Sea) as first edition orchestra score in 1905 was based on Hokusai's The Great Wave off Kanagawa from series 'Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji' 🌊🗻. This was his idea.
I may feel comfortable playing his violin sonata due to the affinity with Japan.
He is one of my favorite composers.
