Deutsche Oper Vorspiel

This is the second Violin Masterclass by Professor Tomasz Tomaszewski after end of this January, in order to continue more perfection of the two Violin Concertos by Niccolò Paganini and "Fantaisie sur des motifs de l'Opéra Faust de Gounod (alias Faust Fantasy)" by Henryk Wieniawski during entire part of last week. It was super hard but in very gentle and relaxed atmosphere of the violin class by Professor Tomaszewski. Although this Violin Masterclass had been organized at Blackmore's Berlins Musikzimmer, I had a first and super opportunity to play at Deutsche Oper Vorspiel at the end of the Violin Masterclass. Here are the programs of the Violin Masterclass by Professor Tomaszewski during 13 - 19 June 2016 and the Deutsche Oper Vorspiel on 19 June 2016 ;

Each of advices by Professor Tomaszewski makes immediate and great facility, technical problem solvings and deep and delicate musical tone expression during playing the both Violin Concertos by Niccolò Paganini and Fantaisie sur des motives de l'Opéra "Faust" de Gounod by Henryk Wieniawski to play them more and longer. Since when I began playing the Violin Concertos by Paganini, no longer I can stop playing them.

During Masterclasses organized by Blackmore's IMA, we can also go and listen to the concerts by the Professors. In last week I enjoyed listening violin recital by Professor Tomaszewski for Polish works. After the recital, I received the copies of music of those repertories by Professor Tomaszewski with his edition!!! 

After Deutsche Oper Vorspiel we talked about how yet to improve our interpretations, our schedules after this Violin Masterclass, recent goal(s) (?) for our violin playing etc. in German, Russian or Polish languages with a glass of white wine. One of our collegues will fly to Japan instead of me for 14 concerts in different Japanese cities and some of others went to play on the evening concert(s) already, after this short celebration. Ebenso, we didn't forget also to discuss for next plannings in Berlin with the latest version of the Masterclass Catalog in Berlin (!). 

Also, we don't have to take rests in this Summer.
