Continuum, Part Four: Tai Murray and Ysaÿe

There are times at which I cannot find the words to describe what I have heard.

Perhaps that means that I should become a bit more articulate, considering that my friend and colleague Brian J. Hong has written beautifully about Tai Murray's playing, and that Ms. Murray exhibits extraordinary communication skills which can be read in recent interviews published at both online industry magazine violinist.com and Ebony Magazine.

The depth with which Tai speaks of the continuum of which she is a part - from studying at Indiana University and becoming a part of the direct link to Ysaÿe via Yuval Yaron, Josef Gingold and Franco Gulli to her words on the 1690 Giovanni Tononi violin on which she recorded the Six Sonatas for Unaccompanied Violin, Op. 24 - parallels the very thorough, thoughtful, and convincing musicmaking displayed in this performance.

And THAT, dear friends, is all from here....
