Violin Masterclass in Prague - February 2018

An introduction (rather I want to call it "invitation", if you agree with me) from the Director of the Violin Masterclass in Prague arrived at me just on the last Christmas (!) and I was adjusting for it with him, of course (and very well). What's more, the real surprise this time was adding one more concerto with orchestra for the concert on 10 February 2018. Many beautiful surprises coming to me but I had been told ;

"People envies you. Play more, Alucard !!"

And it began in Prague.

First of all, I missed the welcome meeting at Italian Cultural Institute (Prague) on 05 February 2018 because I fell asleep in my room during the daytime. However, it neither disturbed me and the Director nor made me sick, at all. I don't know why but it took 40 minutes to Italian Cultural Institute (Prague) that included false route walking and it also took 40 minutes to be there even without being lost on the streets. Only the last two concert days the route took approximately 20 minutes by foot on the same streets (why ?).

Professor Sciarretta gave me 5 violin lessons at Italia Cultural Institute (Prague) in order to prepare the 3 repertories for 2 Concerts with very nice and ultra powerful advices with saying ;

"We need making new (Machen wir etwas Neu) !"

and

"I have idea (Ich habe Idee) !"

repeatedly during the lessons.

One of the participants was complaing that the piano accompaniment for Ciaconna by Tomaso Antonio Vitali (Charlier Ed.) was delayed but never in my cases (rather, their performance was not bad at all).

Here're the programs ;

"Congratulations, Naoko !"

"Congratulations !!"

After the concert I had been adviced for an intonation issue during my performance of Estate / Sommer Concerto by Vivaldi with the orchestra. However, the both Professors also continued ; 

"But the performance level is completely different ! It's high !!!"

"Your level is so different ! You're different from after Marienbad (in last Sommer) !!!!"

"You're changed !!!!!"

There, I finally confessed to them that I need to continue like this time and um so weiter, whether I was called Naoko or M. Matsui or Alucard or ....

"Thank you, Raven, oder M. Matsui !"
