Jápadočeský Symphonický Orchestr Mariánské Lázně "Mezinárodní mistrovské houslové kurzy"

From Vienna, it took approximately 10 hours to be in Mariánské Lázně / Marienbad (Czech Republic) after the two concerts at Stift Geras and Kirche Halbturn (both in Austria). Although I arrived at Mariánské Lázně / Marienbad on 24 July 2017, it was mostly at 22h (the closing time of Základní umělecká skola Fryderyka Chopina / Frederick Chopin's Music School). Therefore, I began meeting with the event manager and the both Professor Maurizio Sciarretta and Professor Jitka Hosprová from 25 July 2017 afternoon.

It was not only by the event manager himself but also other concerned members who were often talking about this International Violin Masterclass as "Entertaining Success" delightfully. There, I was agreeing with them completely and we were already talking about the next time. His managements are very precise and the schedules were very comfortable.

My interpretations in First Violin Concerto by Niccolò Paganini had been extremely polished by the both wonderful, brilliant and graceful Professors. Professor Sciarretta refined my technical interpretations for extremely artistic expressions and the realization methods. Professor Hosprová reinforced my precisions for each subtle phrase making with showing by her viola playing (!!!). During their five lessons, I never stopped surprising and adding new methods to play the Concerto by Paganini.

The two rehearsals for the First Violin Concerto by Paganini with Jápadočeský Symphonický Orchestr Mariánské Lázně / West Bohemian Symphony Orchestra Mariánské Lázně conducted by Maestro Martin Peschík had been realized very quickly and smoothly, once in the Theater Mariánské Lázně and another in Společenský dům Casino Mariánské Lázně (Casino Cultural and Conference Centre of Mariánské Lázně) as the concert venue. Here are the programs ;

Sometimes senses of my expressions on my strings exaggerate more than I was expecting. So that never made me tired however, because I was required to realize and acquire them as fast as possible. 

I had an impressive conversation with Professor Hosprová after the last violin lessons during this Violin Masterclass at Základní umělecká skola Fryderyka Chopina / Frederick Chopin's Music School ; ordinaly contents about my current living in Germany but all of her questions were which I was asked periodically but always calmly and sympathetically, whether I was in Germany or another countries for my concerts. I simply replied (or explained ?) as usual as what I was doing especially in Hamburg (and also some parts of my past studying life in Brussels Belgium).

Anyway, both the Violin Masterclass and the Concert were really "as if all of music festivals were in one night", even all of them were true (not just dreams). I had been awarded the very gorgeous Masterclass Certificate with detailled program contents (!) after the end of the concert and walking in the midnight Mariánské Lázně.
