An Invitation to All Violinists Everywhere (not just the U.S.) -

Do you want to celebrate America's first great master of the violin by giving a concert tribute to Maud Powell? Other violinists have done it - look for Concert Tributes when you click on Commemorations . No specific format or program - recital, chamber music (Maud Powell formed her own quartet and trio), or concerto with orchestra. No need for an anniversary date to celebrate. Maud Powell played nearly everywhere so it is appropriate to celebrate her achievements and contributions to music just about anywhere. She was probably in your community. We can check our files to see. There are all sorts of Maud Powell anniversary dates to celebrate -- and we have now published a sheet music collection of her transcriptions and music dedicated to her as Maud Powell Favorites. You can hear some of this music on Rachel Barton Pine's wonderful CD -- American Virtuosa, Tribute to Maud Powell, released by Cedille in 2007.
