Tonight I visited Amandora Recital Hall and was treated to the smooth classical violin sounds of Izabela Jaworower along with Young Zeid on piano. It sounded so amazing I flipped on the recorder and asked later if it was ok to film. With approval from the sim owner and Izabela and Young, I made a little video to share a bit here. Someone in the audience described it as haute musique.. that sounded about right.
It was only later I found a notecard in my inventory about Izabela with some background information such as Izabela was born in Eastern Poland and graduated from the State Music School for gifted childdren. From there came a long list of achievements. She has toured all over the world with the Mexico City Philharmonic and upon arrival to the United States was offerd a full scholarship to the Los Angeles Philharmonic institute under the direction of Leonard Bernstein and Michael Tilson Thomas. She has many recordings including with celebrities Bernstein, Domingo, Pavarotti, Yoyo Ma, Michael Jackson, Gloria Estefan, etc. She has played for two presidents and the Pope. Izabela leads a busy performance career, keeps a prominent teaching studio, and we are lucky to have her in SL. Young Zeid was very imipressive on the piano as well, and I look forward to hearing him on the violin too some time. Check them out if you get a chance.
