Could he be the next Paganini?

Recommended Posts

This is an old thread. But I just want to follow up with the story.

After watching Eugene struggling with the tiny VSO in the video, I shared the story with my friend Claudio Rampini in Italy. Collectively, Claudio and I provided a good instrument to Eugene so he can further improve his music making.

It has been 2 years since we send him the violin. He competed in the Oistrakh violin competition in Ukraine last week and received the 2nd price.

Here is the 50MB AVI file for his performance of Lalo in 2nd round. We are very happy with how he has developed musically. I hope you can enjoy it too. I did not use Youtube because I like to maintain the quality of recording as much as I can.

WOW!! Now, I'll be the first to admit I don't get out much, and I especially don't have much experience listening to (or watching) violinists at work, but this just blew me away. Thank you VERY much for posting that! I was spellbound. In fact, there was an audio dropout or glitch around 6:48 or so, where the sound quit for just a second, and I was so into the performance my heart nearly jumped out of my chest when that happened. I don't yet know if it was the recording or my computer, but I suspect my computer for now. Fantastic, thank you!
