  1. She was a feture on OPRAH what a great vioce for such a little girl and great personality she is making classical music populare again!!!!! what do you think of her??
  2. I don't know why but I have noticed that the violin has become a very "publicly favored" I have seen a person play the violin on -The Rosie show -Canada AM -Gabaroue LIVE -christmas specials -live with reguse and kathy lee in the last 2 weeks!! Let me tell you one thing... I see it more on television then the ever popular guitar or piano! I'm suprised everyone doesn't play the violin! why are people so afraid of it?? it must hit the public's taste in one way or another... Even more and more movies are coming out that have to do with the violin. was the violin always so much in the spot light or am I just noticing it more now that I want to play?
  3. I was just wondering are there any good movies that have to do with the violin? I know one "the red violin" a Canadian movie I have never seen it though ahare your thoughts ect.
  4. ok you write "I agree with Victor; spelling and grammar is important. This is how we communicate." I should have been "spelling and grammer ARE inportant..." I think that was the worst sentance you could have ever made that mistake in!! the sentance should have been plural!!! well just a thought and a lesson... don't try to "correct" what you yourself are not perfect in!!! well anyway I'm not at all a native speaker and look... I found a mistake in something a native speaker wrote!!! just a thought! well anyways i won't judge you!! I just thought it was a little funny!!
  5. I geuss the argument we got into was pretty pointless,worthless and mad this board less friendly but I am going to say that I am sorry... but... you have to admit you are a bite negative and unfriendly at times and no point of arguing who's better.. everyone has there own opinion it was a bit childish of you and me to argue like that so... "SORRY" and please don't let this discurage you from giving me advice! P.S. you try to speak and almost write fluent english in a play where speaking english to someone (out side of the school) is almost like an insult!!! one thing is surtain... I speak much better French and if this was in French I would be making fun of your spelling! ET BON Nouvelle "year!

  7. thanks to all the supporters of Karen and whats with all this "cring, when I see a spelling mistake..." i thought this board was about the violin and not grammer or spelling. and stop saying that "I am a beginner" sure i can't play the violin yet, But i can still say what is good music and what is not. I don't go insulting you guys about listening to classical music... although I am loaded and full of ammunition! but I won't get started... either way guys you know she's better then all of you then why do you go insulting her playing ability? I geuss you can start insulting when you get 2 Cd's out and play the part of "soloist" for one of the world's most famouse composers. P.S. don't you think it's kind of stupid to think she cannot play classical pieces just as good as Jazz or new age... I mean she didn't get to where she is by playing Yanni's "easy" music all her life! One thing is curtain... she is a true artist! she takes Yanni's music and turns it into something that is so real and alive!! Hay... Just because she doesn't play classical music doesn't mean anything and you cannot compare the two without being biest. what some of you are saying is like saying "charrlotte church is a better musician then Celine Dion" and you really cannot do that... one sings classical and the other pop. so just grow up people... you don't have anything building to say so you insult something that has nothing to do with the subject (spelling) and I don't think you could spell any better if you lived in French speaking Quebec all your life and where inrolled in "the Royal Academy of the Sciences" since grade 7 and all you did for 3 hours a day was Math, Chemistry and physics! and a bit of English and a lot of French

  9. just so that you know Karen HAS played soloist with many of the world's leading orchestras. including 1st violin. I really think that her imsurpratation of Yanni's music is great! she has turned it into something deeper then it was ment to be!!!
  10. now for all the Karren Briggs hatters out there... do you accually think that a work famouse composer and artist like Yanni would accually have his solo violinist not be able to spiccato or be able to play hard pieces!! HA! Just to get the job she was against some of the best violinists in the world!! And come on don't all of you think saying "she can't play beetoven" is a little mean!! I don't think she would be performing in front of 50,000 people if she couldn't play... I really don't know what you people have against he... Just because her songs don't require all that hard stuff doesnt't mean she can't do it... After all she's not the composer Yanni is. Anyway I love to "watch" Karen perform... she performs with such consentration and expression. Expression that distiguishes her from the world!!!!!!!!!!! Personally I like Yanni's compositions (not Yanni though!) I really like the way he gives each instrument it's time in the spot light. And I love Karen... more then Lila, Vannesa, Or Nigal!! "Makes her look good" -Paganini "Cause she is good!" -Violink!!! There you go again paganini with your negative attitude again!!
  11. What do you think is the most inportant to have when playing the violin is concerned... anything you can list would be good... for example (a good ear,good rythm, big feet ) and please don't write "Everything put together" as it is true but what I want to know is what really helps.
  12. who is your favorite violinist... (ex. Karen Briggs, Vanessa Mae, Lilia Josefowicz??) My favorite in classical must be Lilia Josefowicz but Karen Briggs has a style all her own!! Vanessa Mae is ok but I always feel like there is something missing? what is your opinion If you have never heard of Karen Briggs she plays with Yanni you can here her solo preview at WWW.CDNOW.com her cd is called amazing grace... I love it!!! with real player you can get about 3 songs previewed. just to give you a taste of her style
  13. What do you think of YANNI's commposition and over all music.... he always has a lot of violin in his compositions.... some like him others don't and if you don't why? and one more thing what is NEW AGE music??
