Clip of the Week!

It’s Wednesday and it is time for your Clip of the Week!

The studio has been buzzing preparing applications for a few great students here.  One of them is 12 year old Olivia Chen.

Here is Olivia with pianist Priscilla Ko playing one of the most revered lyrical sections in the violin literature.  While we all know the technical sections and what kind of discipline they take, this lyrical section is one of the hardest ones in the concerti literature for beauty of tone, pitch, and line.  

Great job Olivia and best of luck in all of your recent endeavors!
