Contemporary violin in concert competition, live

Recommended Posts

Wow... first place plus the audience choice award.  Best possible result.  Congrats to Annelle, and it was greatly enjoyable for me, too.

So sad that she didn't use a megabuck antique violin, enabling her to rise to a higher level than first place.

That's likely to happen soon, with all the investment groups that I expect will be throwing megabuck violins at her.

If you gave her the violin as a loaner for the competition, it should sell quite easily now.  Good content for your not yet in existence web site.  Seriously I hope she pulls a Hillary and says no thanks, my Noon works great me I think I'll just stick with this violin.

The live feed from the front line left a lot to be desired, as they usually do.  Live feeds are an afterthought, whether it's Sphinx or Spacex.  So I hope Sphinx will put it on their YT channel.  Also, I think I read that PBS or NPR usually broadcasts the recording at some point.

Hey Don, What strings were Annelle using?  I think GDA were the same color but was mostly just enjoying the performance and didn't remember to give a closer look until it was too late.  If there was any string juggling it would be interesting to hear what strings did what until the "right" strings were found for this violin.

I don't know for sure.  It had Evah P's on (gold label E) when I gave it to her, and a while later I asked and she said she hadn't changed the strings.  Could be that they are still on, 2 months later (also the same set that was on in October at the VMAAI competition).  Best guess is that they are; she mentioned changing strings when they break but not much about changing strings regularly.
