Paganini...Moto Perpetuo

Sunday, Haley performed Moto Perpetuo by Paganini for her teacher's studio recital. She worked really hard preparing because she had decided just before Christmas to play it instead of the Bartok Rumanian Dances she had originally chosen and she hadn't yet learned the last two pages of this piece then a week ago, her teacher had to move the concert up from Jan. 29th to the 22nd giving her one less week. She did a great job and worked really hard!

I did notice that the dress choice was not the best since it kept threatening wardrobe malfunction. Amazing that she memorized all those very similar notes and that she could keep going that quickly and still manage to keep her dress straps and sliding violin from falling off her shoulder! LOL

My aunt was a concert viola-ist. sp? Anyhow, it was back in the 60's and 70's when miniskirts were so popular. My grandma would sit in the front aisle and make sure my aunt's knees were together.

Your daughter is amazing talented btw! Wow!
