If you happen to be in the neighborhood . . .
Preparing for this recital has been a real challenge for me because so much of the music we are playing is in the violin's upper register. As a flutist I lived among the ledger lines all the time. As a violist playing the notes above the pitch of D just above the treble clef are kind of like riding on little sailboats while navigating through stormy seas. Faure, Beethoven, and Turina use the violin's upper register really well, and my goal for this performance is to enjoy exposing my fiddle's lovely upper register through their wonderful music.
Here's a map that will show you how to get there.
