🔊 Ysayë: Ballade, Sonata no.3
Performed by Anna Tifu @annatifu.
Ok, now I'm seriously addicted to Anna's playing😭😍This HAS to be one of the best version of the Ballade I've ever heard! Plus, she's playing on a 1716 Strad as well!
The first performance of Ysayë's Ballade was given by Josef Gingold, whose famous 1683 Stradivarius, known as the Martinelli ex-Gingold, is now played by Tessa Lark @tessalark on generous loan from the Josef Gingold Fund for the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis.
Could the premiere performance of this piece be played on the 1683 Strad since it was Gingold's main concert instrument from 1946-1995? I assume it is highly likely that the piece was premiered on this 1683 Strad that Tessa is playing on!☺
