It's summertime, and I am in the middle of the slog of summer festivals. I am on festival #3, the NYU Intensive String Quartet Seminar, located in New York City on the NYU campus. It's nice to have students scattered around at these various festivals; not only do I get to keep an eye on them, but we get to explore many aspects of performing and traveling that we may not approach during the normal school year.
here is a link to a radio broadcast I did last week when I was performing the Bartok Concerto in Houston. Chock full of interesting factoids for the viola-nerdy.
Looking forward to seeing you at the next festival!
