Violins And Violinists

I like string instruments. Daily I’m fingerpicking on my guitar. But I put my hat off, if I notice some violinists. I made some street shots (the Irish Ms. Kelly below), adore the portraits shot by Giancarlo Rado in Italy (the second pic below) – but a God on the violin I believe is: David Garret – a medley of his project “Rock Symphonies” also below (youtube, open air concert in Berlin, Waldbühne)

  1. Frizz, one of my dreams is to learn to play the violin and I decided to do it this year. I’m looking for a violin teacher since the past week. A friend of mine recommended me to talk to a violinist the past weekend. This violinist made a good impression on me when he told me that he gave violin classes for free during 5 years in a classroom borrowed to him by the government with 75 students, and they sometimes made performances in a borrowed theater for free but unfortunately, due to the change of government administration, he doesn’t have the government support anymore, so he actually doesn’t teach because he doesn’t have a place to do it. What a waste of knowledge and good intentions! :(


  2. Love violins, though can’t play one. My brother always wanted to but he refuses to learn because they say to master it you have to start as a child and he’s too big of a perfectionist to do it unless he can be perfect.

    Have never heard of David Garrett but after watching this am going to go look for him on youtube – thanks :D


  3. Speaking women and violins so Anne-Sophie Mutter
    – you have your own (german) superstar (and good-looking too)… :-)


  4. Speaking about violins, Vannessa Mae live is great
    – really enjoyed it several times… :-)


    • hi ledrakenoir / N. in Denmark, as usually I must read, as I wanted to follow the Vanessa Mae video: “Unfortunately, this EMI-music-content is not available in Germany because GEMA has not granted the respective music publishing rights.” And then black. I cancelled my youtube account, very sad. Sometimes I upload at now, me, after breakfast, in my kitchen:

      Freight Train

      I hope you have no technical problems to listen to my guitar fingerpicking – sorry, that I do not look like Vanessa Mae…


  5. Great stuff – if Garrett’s brilliant music doesn’t bring in a younger audience his sex appeal will…
