On the Slovenian National TV, prime time Christmas Concert as a soloist with my old high school's symphonic orchestra!!
(Kudos to them, I think they're one of the few regular, not musical high schools, that have their very own SYMPHONIC orchestra! :)) #saxophone#soloist#symphonicorchestra#livemusic#musician#nyc#jazz
Pianist and current doctoral candidate Timothy Ledger joined the McGill Symphony Orchestra in rehearsal today to prepare for this weekend's concert. Would you like to attend the performances taking place January 19th and 20th at 7:30 pm in Pollack Hall? Buy your tickets now:
I am absolutely thrilled/honored/overjoyed to share that I have been invited to be Artist in Residence by @rauschenbergfoundation this August at their Captiva Florida location. I can’t express how grateful I am for the opportunity to work in the company of such incredible people, and look forward to creating something special during my time there.
.... ruined this picture :D it was pretty „dark“ already and i had to take a picture with 1/8 of a second with 50mm... turned out good - its sharp. But a lot of the bike is in the depth of field. I do like the picture anyways... i love the colors 👌🏼

Hey everyone! Some of you have been following me for a while, but I thought I would re-introduce myself those of you who have joined me recently!🤗 Here are 10 facts to know about me:
1. I was born in Ukraine🇺🇦 and moved to the US🇺🇸 in 1999. I grew up in Washington state and currently am in college in Boston🏰.
2. I started violin lessons at age 13 and switched to viola at age 21🎻.
3. My natural hair colour is blonde👱♀️. Yep.
4. I love salsa+merengue+bachata+reggaeton dancing💃🔥. Give me a pair of heels and some Ricky Martin or Marc Anthony and I'm good to go!👠 5. I have really bad haemophobia❤ (fear of blood). Like, REALLY bad. I will literally scream and run away if I see blood. I can't even touch raw meat🥓. But I also really like studying forensic psychology and serial killers🕵️♂️. LOL
6. I reeeeeeally like succulents🌵. I have like 20 back in Washington.
7. One of the closest times I have been to dying was when I almost got hit by a falling coconut.🏝🤣 Which apparently is a more common way to die than you'd think.
8. I don't reveal much about my personal life, but I've actually been married for almost 5 years💍. Husband is an engineer who has a tendency to overwater the aforementioned succulents when they are left in his care.💧
9. I am fluent in English, Russian, Ukrainian, and French🇬🇧🇷🇺🇺🇦🇫🇷.
10. The fastest way to my heart is through a martini🍸 or a bowl of poke 🐟 (raw ahi tuna).

Rehearsing the sunny, uplifting, and virtuosic Brahms Concerto with @liverpool_philharmonic tomorrow! 🎻
I have such fond memories of playing this piece. I began performing it when I was 19 years old, and I remember my lessons with the great cellist Rostropovich in his home in Paris. He’d stop me before I even played the very first note and say “you cannot do it like this, you need to imagine yourself walking on stage and already be inspired!!”. He would make me leave the room, and I’d have to come back in, and bow and he would clap! A lifetime is simply not enough to discover all the secrets of this masterpiece! 🎼 Recording details: 🎶 Brahms Violin Concerto In D, Op. 77 - 1. Allegro Non Troppo
〰️ Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks
〰️ Mariss Jansons, Conductor
〰️ Julian Rachlin, Violin
📀 Warner Classics
UK, USA, Germany, and Switzerland meet Brahms, Mendelssohn, Beethoven and Stravinsky! I’ll be touring in January and February - get the details on my website + Facebook!
One of the most frustrating things for me is thinking that I look really into it when I'm playing, only to watch my recordings and see that I am in fact not even moving🤣
So currently I am working on looking more engaging when I play.
Here is some Bach Adagio from the first violin sonata for you. Full link in bio!⬆️
Live Q&A will be tomorrow at 8pm Seattle time! Don't worry if you miss it; I will post the video on my YouTube afterwards!📻
See you all soon!✌💋

Looking for a new violin. Some tips and tricks on what to listen for? Please leave a comment down below! 😊
Happy Debussy year, everyone! Although there will be no major contribution from me this year, I am performing and recording his rarely heard Ballade to commemorate the French genius. I think it is the absolute freedom and ambiguity of Debussy which I find so moving, and which blossomed in his Images, Preludes and Etudes. Perhaps it is possible to compare the early pieces of Debussy to that of a poet who is still writing in rhymes, as opposed to the free verses which emerged so splendidly later on? Well, it doesn’t really matter - this moves me to tears as well. #pianist#soloist#debussy#anniversaire#ballade#piano#music#classicalpiano#classicalmusic#beauty#french#freedom#pianistgrøvlen
