Chee-Yun performance

UW has a fantastic cultural program and we always bring in amazing performers. Yesterday my friends and I went to see Chee-Yun‘s violin performance. It was phenomenal! At one point one of the strings on her bow even broke from the intensity of her playing and she had to tear it off during a pause. She was accompanied during some pieces by Andrew Staupe on the piano.

She played:

Violin Sonata No. 9 in A Major, Op. 47 (Beethoven)

Adagio sostenuto – Presto – Adagio
Andante con variazioni

“Chaconne” from Partita No. 1 in d minor, BWV 1004 (Bach)

Louange a i’Immortalite de Jesus (messiaen)

Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso (Saint0Saens)

With an encore performance of Rachmaninoff with Andrew and a violin solo by a composer I didn’t catch.

Here’s a video from YouTube (she was even wearing this same dress!):

Get out there and experience life!!
