For five years I have been sharing a video about how I play the violin through Youtube. And now I want to share my story, which I hope will reach good people, including you, with whom I will be able to meet thanks to God's grace.
Years of study were a time of great effort for me. Constantly working on myself, I participated in various competitions, some of which I won, made my debut with various orchestras, spent more than a hundred solo concerts in Ukraine, Switzerland, Italy, France, Germany, Denmark, Finland and the Czech Republic. Between these events, I downloaded a video about myself on Youtube, because I believed that real music could excite the hearts of glorious people.
Many of you may have shrewdly noticed on Youtube the difference between my creative aspirations and the real possibilities of my violin and bow. This is not because I am not acutely dissatisfied, for this reason, and not because I am passive or have no time ... but because I have no means to buy a violin bow, which could would respond adequately to the impulses of my soul and fantasy.
I spent a lot of time visiting the violin shops, studying the websites of violin makers and auction houses, contacting a diverse list of people, just to find a violin for me. However, after many unsuccessful attempts, I had to face the harsh truth: the value of a violin for me is unbearable from a financial point of view.
With your help, I hope to get the violin of my dream. Outwardly, this seems to be a personal gain. However, I believe that it will bring more benefits to the audience than me. As a musician, I learned to give the results of many hours of practice and hard work to no one else but my audience. With a violin bow, I want to inspire people, I want to sow the seeds of hope in someone's life. I want to translate the message about the beauty of the soul into a language understandable to everyone.
The peculiarity of my play (playing without a chin rest, and sometimes without a shoulder rest - N.Paganini's way of violin playing) designed to unleash the true potential of a violin led me to the homeland of Paganini, where, unfortunately, there are no funds in whose competitions for getting a violin I could participate ...
After I will get the violin bow of my dream, I will record a CD with my own compositions for violin, the link to which will be here.
