While busking in NYC, an elderly man walked up to me after I perform a piece by Fritz Kriesler. He says,"I used to study the violin with Kreisler when I wss really young!" Yes, I did some research, and Kriesler did live in NYC after 1914!
Another time when I was busking in Penn station, NYC, a man was running to catch his train. Upon hearing de Falla,s Spanish dance, he stopped and yelled across,"by the way, Manuel de Falla was my great grand father!". Talking about wild moments!
I definitely have had embarrassing moments in the past, and will sure have more in the future as long as I'm a music performer! One experience was from when I was young, performing a Spanish dance by Manuel de Falla, a hair from the bow was loose and went to the fingerboard, my fingers tripped on the hair, the bow flew away from My bw hand...landed a few feet from me...the pianist stopped, everyone's waited for me to walk over to pick up the bow....where should I resume now..? Yike....that was once, never happened again!
Oh, when I first got my violin....its mine....I was elated! Every night I made sure my violin case was set right next to my bed by my pillow!
“You made my heart sing.”
“Thanks for playing my song.”
“Here kid, buy yourself something.”
“On my couch, saving the world.”
