Performing in beautiful San Diego on Sunday, and bringing the Bruch Violin Concerto. The Violin Concerto No. 1 is Bruch's most beloved work, and for good reason! The slow movement, in particular, is one of the most beautiful things written for violin.

Throwback to last month's The Man with the Violin family concert with the Seattle Symphony. One of the best parts of my job is getting to play for kids and seeing how they respond so genuinely to music. Here's to a future where all kids experience the arts in their daily lives! #MusicMatters #SupportMusicEd #ThrowbackThursday

While in Paris, I caught up with my great friend, conductor AND pilot extraordinaire Daniel Harding...inside his super-high-tech flight simulator! He let me fly from Charles de Gaulle to Orly...my landing left us 'virtually' alive but perhaps a bit banged up!

Thanks for all the Barcelona suggestions! I have wonderful memories of this city, and fondly remember the first I performed here in 1985. While I played Saint-Saëns on this trip, my Barcelona debut was of Lalo's Symphonie espagnole with Leonard Slatkin and the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra. Looking forward to checking a lot of those restaurants off my list.
