Yellow Tuesday “Horatian Temptation”

Violinist Sergey Tsoy - one of our favorite Gyros Quartet collaborators - performing one of his own compositions, Yellow Tuesday “Horatian Temptation”, No. 2 from Seven Concert Miniatures for Violin and Orchestra Op. 24 (2011).

He says the inspiration came from practicing Prokofiev's Symphony No. 5 and watching “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” at the same time.

Eden & Michael at Dallas Country Club



This poignant ceremony took place on July 14th at the Dallas Country Club. Eden had chosen the music herself, and in particular requested for her own processional a movement from Philip Glass’ String Quartet No. 3 (‘Mishima’). As it turns out, it worked absolutely beautifully: she let the first 15 seconds build as an introduction, and then entered as the melody rose up.

Prelude:
Handel“The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba”
MozartDivertimento No. 1 in D
Bach
Concerto for Two Violins - “Largo ma non tanto”
