Madrid

マドリッド

I went to Spain for a short trip to meet friends we have in Madrid and also to meet my friends from the Mexican Orchestra I always play with.
スペインのマドリッドに少しの間だけ行ってきました。マドリッドにいる友達に会う為なんですが、メキシコ交響楽団もちょうどスペインにツアーに来ているので、その友達にも会いにスペインまでやって来ました!メキシコ交響楽団とはもうお馴染みですねー。毎年一緒に演奏してます。


While there I tried to take some pictures...
旅の間写真を撮って見る事に..


So here is the famous and wonderful Prado Museum.

The Mexican State Symphony Orchestra was on Tour in Spain, I actually was gonna play some concerts with them but it did not workout at the end. Anyway they also played in Madrid so I listened to their concert and met all my friends which was very nice.
メキシコ州立交響楽団がスペインをツアー中でした。本当は僕もコンサートを彼らと一緒に行う予定でしたが、最終段階でうまく決まりませんでした。でもマドリッドのコンサートを見に行き団員の皆とも会えてよかったです。

Here you see me in front of the Poster from the Madrid concert. Smile!

Christmas Market Frankfurt

Christmas marked christmas marked3

Every year in December everywhere in Germany we have Christmas Markets. In Frankfurt we have a quite nice one with a very big christmas tree. Since the pianist Miyuki Onitake from Japan was visiting me we of course had to go there and drink some famous Gluehwein - hot red wine mixed with some Christmas herbs and sometimes spiced with Rum or other stronger liquids so it makes you feel warm during the cold temperatures....- ..so we had a good time! hehe....

christmas marked2

so to everybody the best Season's Greetings and MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Mendelssohn violin concerto

mendelssohn2

I played Mendelssohn concerto in Offenburg, a town very close to my hometown in Freiburg, Germany. It was a great concert I really enjoyed it so much. I played with an old friend of mine Walter-Michael Vollhardt, he is the principal cellist of the Freiburg Symphony Orchestra and also a wonderful conductor.

Wuppertal

wuppertal1wuppertal2

This time I went to a concert, not as a performer, but as part of the audience. I went to Wuppertal, where I spent some childhood years. I started to play the violin there, and and also heard my first classical concerts in the 'Stadhalle' - the historical concert hall in Wuppertal. The concert hall is really beautiful. The Symphony Orchestra of Wuppertal now has a Japanese conductor Toshiyuki Kamioka. So I listened to the orchestra conducted by Maestro Kamioka who i met after the concert and chattet with for a bit.


wuppertal3This is where we lived when I was little. My brother, Genn is beside me in the picture. Behind us you can see the windows of our apartment, where I lived between the ages of 5 and 7.

Josef Rissin in concert

Josef Rissin in concert1

My professor, Josef Rissin played a series of concerts in the Karlsruhe, performing all 10 of Beethoven's Sonatas for violin and piano. He played them in 3 concerts so this was the 3rd and last of the series. It was a great series and very interesting to follow all 3 concerts as he is a great musician when it comes to understanding Beethoven and his music.

I took the pic when he was tuning before he started...

Summer in Danmark

Danmark

I spent my summer vacation in Denmark as usual....

I think we have gone there almost every summer for the past 15 years to rest and hide away from daily stress.... Denmark is a very nice country, but what bothers me is that telecommunications arent really installed in the place we stay. Its a very small village in the south of Danmark called Marielyst. We started to go there because my professor always goes there for his vacation.

In the pic you see me on attempting to do some morning sports...hehe
