In Denmark we have had many great composers. One of them was Jacob Gade, who wrote many fine pieces. The most wellknown is Jalousie, written in 1925 and since then played over and over again in radio. ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUW_DKlM8Og - Unfortunally I could not find it on VImeo ) Jacob Gade was born in the Danish town Vejle, and now a days there is a competition among talented young violinists in that town.
The competition has been filmed by my friend Poul vimeo.com/user2296574 , but this year he was unable to be there, and he asked me to do the job. I was approved although it was the first time I tried filming in a theater like that – and I tell you it was a fine experience. The young people were extremely talented. In this short clip you can see – and hear – one of them.
As you can see my tripod wasn’t stable enough for the 400mm tele, so now I have bought a new and better one. Came today, looking forward!
I Vejle, den danske komponist og violinist Jacob Gades fødeby, holdes jævnligt en konkurrence på meget højt niveau for unge violinister. Det har tidligere været min ven Poul ( vimeo.com/user2296574 ), der optog videofilm derfra, men i år var han forhindret og foreslog mig til at overtage jobbet. Denne film viser den yngste deltagers imponerende præstation.
