First performance in Mexico of Michel van der Aa Violin Concerto

It was a real joy playing Michel van der Aa’s terrific violin concerto in Mexico last week with the excellent Symphony Orchestra with my friend Roberto Beltrán-Zavala, conductor, who shares my love for this fantastic, colorful, virtuosic piece. Here’s a bit of the end of the first movement, for who’s interested in this music, from the rehearsal. The piece also has many beautiful, dreamy and ‘impressionistic’ sections, very exciting to play and I recommend to all violinists! ✨✨

Daniel has just returned from Buenos Aires where he gave the very first performance in Mexico of the Michel van der Aa Violin Concerto.

I’m happy to share this little video about the Stift Festival that we made last Sunday. I visited some beauty-spots round Stift and talk a little bit about the upcoming 14th Stift Festival, and the place I grew up.I hope you enjoy this ‘Postcard from Stift’, and feel free to share 😊✨🎶

Rowland - pictured above with the Guarneri del Gesu - says:

"I am delighted, excited and honoured to be given this beautiful violin on loan from the Dutch Musical Instrument Foundation. It's the 1736 'ex-Rode' Guarneri del Gesu. It's a violin with an incredible history and I'm hugely looking forward to discovering all the secrets hidden within! My big thanks to Frits Schutte and to all at the foundation for making this possible!"
