Zino Francescatti performs Mozart Violin Concerto no.4 with the Orchestre de la Société des concerts du Conservatoire conducted by Jerzy Semkov.
Here, Francescatti performs on the 1727 "Hart, Francescatti" Stradivarius, which he acquired in 1936 and owned till 1987, where he sold the violin to Italian violinist Salvatore Accardo, with the proceeds going to his "Foundation Zino Francescatti" to help the career of a young virtuoso.

In 1970 Thomastik-Infeld was the very first string manufacturer to successfully use nylon fibers (polyamide fibers) as a core material which resulted in the creative of our Dominant strings!
Джордж Харрисон, который очень любил деньги,
Послушал мантры и заторчал,
Купил билет на пароход и уехал в Дели,
И в ушах его все время ситар играл.
Кто на нем играл? Чей это ситар?
На ситаре играл сам Рави Шанкар.
Он сидел в позе лотоса на спине у слона с ситаром в руках.
Джордж Харрисон купил пар двадцать бус.
Джордж Харрисон сказал: "Я буду жить, любя".
А потом он сказал: "Гуд бай", - и ушел в себя.

Secularism, the inc brand type is a tough one to let go off; strings attached.
#BeltitOutBasses • Tonight's "name that tune" segment is brought to you by "Tis the season!" 🎄 #NormaandJoe
I first heard this song in 5th grade as a member of a children's choir, and it's been one of one of my favorite tunes to hear this time of year ever since (Where my Savannah, Georgia, Chatham County "Children of SCORE" peeps at?!)! #childrenschoir#goodmemories #savannahgeorgia
I hope everyone is weathering the holiday season well! It's a very busy time of year - particularly for musicians. Just remember that despite the madness, we, as musicians, have one of the greatest gifts: bringing JOY to people of the world. We are blessed to have this gift. So during your 30th Nutcracker, 10th Messiah, or 100th Holiday Pops, play for that person in the audience for whom that time in the theater is sacred - an escape from the noisiness outside and a much needed respite for their soul. 😌

WHAT is #rosin?
When you have just enough (usually four to five strokes of rosin) the bow moves easily and consistently across the strings, creating warm, rich tones.
When you purchase your instrument and bow, ask the store if your bow is pre-rosined. New bow hairs require more effort to rosin properly since the hairs are rosin-free.
A little snippet of the score I wrote for the film Brolga, written, directed and edited by my good friend @adrianjpowers.
As you can see, the film has been getting into many prestigious film festivals around the world and is also nabbing lots of awards. I am incredibly proud to have been involved with this wonderful film.
SHARING MY MISTAKES • Our story begins on this cold December night, with me thinking about how I “had to” post an Instagram video soon, since it’s been awhile (that in and of itself is a flawed way to look at it, but that’s another story for another night 😉). So, knowing I needed to practice for my performance this week anyway, I begrudgingly took out my phone, set the stand just right, stood in front of my soon-to-be-decorated Christmas tree and pressed record. When I looked back at the 6 minute video, I couldn’t find even a few seconds I’d feel comfortable posting. Everything was a mess because I was rushing through, trying to sound good for the camera (and myself, frankly—after all, I have to present this in front of real people VERY soon). I deleted it and proceeded to open Instagram to catch up on the news.
@thatviolakid’s story popped up and he started talking about how things on Instagram AREN’T perfect. People post what they WANT you to see. I am guilty of this myself: curating 30-60 seconds of goodness when the rest could use a lot more work. It inspired me so much that I literally went into my “recently deleted” folder and recovered my discarded practice video. I then stitched this video together so I could show at least a little bit of what actually goes on behind the scenes. The full video is SIX MINUTES y’all. That’s a lot of mistakes in a short amount of time. You can be sure I’ll be spending some quality time with the metronome tonight, but this is beforehand and I think it’s important for aspiring young musicians to see that it’s a grind. It’s frustrating. But satisfying and with an amazing reward at the end. It’s so easy to forget about that middle part where all the failing and ugly sounds happen. Yet, the more stumbling, the more awareness, learning and the more victory will be yours. It’s actually an advantage.
So, here’s me, failing more times than I’d ever want to show. But even for a professional like me—one who has won competitions, aced violin exams and currently teaches 40+ private students—THE JOURNEY IS IMPERFECT. And I would never want anyone to believe differently about me because this journey is beautiful and REAL. ❤️

Recording my very first #piece for #strings with the awesome #musicians@coen_str on #viola and Alexander Mykhailov on #cello. Although Very unnerving to hear your own composition live fir the first time, but the goosebumps are worth it :) Homework done till next semester !
Many thanks to Kurt Widorski for the guidance, and @oliverscorner for your constant support !

Menjadi seorang cellist bukanlah seenak jidat.namun berjerih payah dan letih.
Intinya yakinlah bahwa proses tidak akan menghianati hasil. With @wandisiahaan
Tonight's "name that tune" segment is brought to you by "whoopee!" #NormaandJoe#whoopee 😲🙂
Today's clip catches me reviewing some notes before my concert this afternoon; there were LOTs of them on the program! Anyone who follows my feed will likely know what piece this is. The music of this composer (a very friendly composer to double bassists 😁) is thrilling! There are sections of this work where you just have to hold on tight and enjoy the ride! #thrilling#buckleyourseatbelts #thisisnotthehardestpart
One more exciting performance Saturday night with @philorch! #yourphilorch#philadelphiaorchestra
