Tomorrow (Sunday, May 20) is my Maud Powell performance! I’ll be near Atlanta at the @madisonculturalcenter in Madison, GA, playing works dedicated to and arranged by Maud Powell with pianist Matthew Hagle. Here’s one of the reasons why Maud is my musical hero:

Maud Powell was the first White instrumentalist of any instrument to champion the work of Black composers and to include negro spirituals as part of her recital programs. She was especially fond of the music of Afro-British composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor. Indeed, Coleridge-Taylor dedicated his Violin Concerto to Maud Powell. This weekend, I’ll play Maud’s arrangement of Coleridge-Taylor’s “Deep River” which she completed in 1905. Her 1911 recording of it was the first version of “Deep River” to be recorded, before any vocal version was even ever recorded.
This version of “Coleridge-Taylor: Deep River, Op 59. No. 10” is from my “American Virtuosa: A Tribute to Maud Powell” on @cedillerecords

Who said this in @violinist.com_ Interviews Volume 2? “A piece of music is relevant to an individual because of personal and subjective reaction to it... The spirit of the concerto, or any musical work, can go beyond what words can explain… One cannot be taught how to feel, and feelings are not a question of right or wrong. We simply do feel.” (Clue: it wasn't me, though I am interviewed in the book and wrote its foreword.) Click this photo for the answer! #book #violin #classicalmusic #violinist.com

I met Dixie Ortiz at the @asta_america National Conference and she told me she was learning my arrangement of “Caprice on Dixie” published in the #RachelBartonPineCollection by @carlfischermusic . Audio is from my American Virtuosa: Tribute to Maud Powell on @cedillerecords #HermanBellstedt #MaudPowell #ASTA #ASTANationalConference #classicalmusic #violin

“Pine is an ideal ambassador for this rapturous work [the Elgar Violin Concerto], capturing its poetic essence and extracting the utmost from its gorgeous melodies -- deeply thoughtful but with a spontaneous flair; its poetry as well as its virtuosity are highlighted with fervour and brilliance.” Thank you @stringsmagazine for the wonderful review of my #ElgarBruchViolinConcertos album with @andrew.litton and the @bbcsymphonyorchestra on #AvieRecords photo credit: @benjaminealovega #classicalmusic #elgar #bruch #newmusic

Long before I traveled by airplane, I traveled by backpack! Happy Mother’s Day to my mom, and thanks for being such a great Grandma!

That was fun! I had the pleasure of writing a “Take 5” blog post for @cedillerecords in connection with Friday’s 5/11 release of J.S. Bach: The Sonatas for Violin & Harpsichord, my new album with the incredible @jvinikour . I especially liked the part where I got to articulate why the Chicago #classicalmusic scene is so special - it’s always great to spend time in my hometown when I’m not on tour. #baroque #bach #cedillerecords #earlymusic #violin #baroqueviolin #harpsichord 📷: @lisamariemazzucco

MY NEW ALBUM DROPS TODAY! My friend @jvinikour and I are celebrating the release of J.S. Bach: The Sonatas for Violin & Harpsichord on @cedillerecords. We all know that the Six Sonatas and Partitas for violin alone is one of the cornerstones of the violin repertoire, but this is Bach’s other big set of six. I’ve loved Jory’s Bach playing for years, so recording it with him is definitely a dream come true. #earlymusic #baroque #baroqueviolin #harpsichord #bach #cedillerecords #violin

"The interviews in Violinist.com Interviews Volume 2 were originally published on @violinist.com_ , an exceptional online community dedicated to fans of the violin. In 2017, we are used to physical media being transformed into digital content. How wonderful to reverse the process, giving us the best of Violinist.com that we can hold in our hands” from my foreword for Violinist.com Interviews Volume 2 http://ow.ly/5hl330jDKqM

@jvinikour and I talked with @cedillerecords #JimGinsburg and #SteveRobinson of #wfmt about the value friendship and trust played in our recording of J.S. Bach: The Sonatas for Violin & Harpsichord for the #CedilleRecords #ClassicalChicago podcast. Link in bio. 📸 @lisamariemazzucco

If you watch this video to the end, you'll see how much my dear friend @jvinikour makes me laugh. It was such a joy to record J.S. Bach's Sonatas for Violin and Harpsichord with him for @cedillerecords Jory and I both grew up in Chicago, but we didn’t meet until we were young adults. For the many years that Jory was living in Europe, we would get together and read when he was back home to visit or perform. Playing this music with him in performance and for the recording sessions has been absolutely thrilling. The album drops May 11, but you may pre-order it now: https://lnk.to/bxGNMCA #earlymusic #harpsichord #baroqueviolin #gagliano #violin #chinnery #classicalmusic #bach #jsbach
