I was born into a family of highly accomplished violinists, and playing violin and my love for classical music courses through my veins. My father was a Galamian prodigy at Julliard, and won his job in the Boston Symphony at age 20. My mother once appeared as a guest soloist with the Boston Pops under Arthur Fiedler.
The point being, I have spent my entire life inundated with exceptional talent, and I've been exposed to ‘quality’ sound and professional playing standards right from the get-go.
As for myself, I won numerous competitions in my youth and have over the years carved out a professional performance career, which affords me diverse opportunities.
This past summer 2013, I was the featured soloist with the Boston Landmarks Orchestra (see the Globe and Intelligencer reviews if interested). I also play with the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra, sub in the Boston Symphony & Boston Pops, and I’m concertmaster of the Boston Landmarks Orchestra.
My performing and dealing experiences are colliding in the most wonderful ways. One helps to nourish the other. First of all, I speak the 'language' of the player and I believe that I can deeply relate to what a player is saying about sound and feel.
Then, my approach to instrument selection and set-up is from a player’s perspective first and foremost, with tonal quality and comfort being the most important criteria.
Please benefit from my experience as a life-long player, and allow me to catch you a catch!
