Pierce Wang - a rising Star!

Pierce Wang (14 years old) performed a violin concerto by Julie Conus in E minor with Solano Symphony Orchestra this evening. What a fantastic violinist! Being a concertmaster of the orchestra I have observed Pierces playing very closely. His playing exhibits flawless technique, impeccable intonation and uncanny understanding of musical phrasing. At the end of the concerto which went great, the orchestra and the audience were treated to an encore called "Der Erlkonig" by Heinrich Ernst. This composition is considered to be one of the most challenging pieces ever written for the violin! Pierce breezed thru it like it was walk in the park! What an amazing talent! YouTube has a video of Pierce playing this piece when he was 11! Please check it out!

We had a great pleasure to perform at Kara's and Jonathan's wedding in Livermore on September 8th, 2017. This wonderful wedding was held at picturesque Garre Winery. We played several custom arranged songs for the bride and groom including "Drops of Jupiter" by Train! I am happy to report they very were pleased with our work and were kind enough to send us a thank you card! Best of luck to the newlyweds!

Max's solo appearance at St.Marks Lutheran Church!

Just performed one of my favorite pieces by G.F.Handel, his famous "Largo" from the Opera "SERSE" ( XERXES ). "Largo" also known as "Ombra mai fu", translated from Italian as "Never was a shade". It is a solemn piece, originally written as an aria for the main character, Xerxes I of Persia. Handel finished composing the opera in 1738, unfortunately it did not became popular until almost hundred years after. There are a number of arrangements of this piece for various instruments. We performed an arrangement by Aug. Reinhard for violin and organ. Enjoy!

On August 12, 2016 Trio Maxim performed at Michael and Kendra's wedding at Mountain Terrace, Woodside. It is a small town in San Mateo County, California, on the San Francisco Peninsula and is among the wealthiest small towns in the United States. It is in the middle of redwood forest, the air is crisp and clear. We were playing in the meadow, surrounded by redwoods and enjoying breathtaking view of the valley bellow.

Congratulations to the newlyweds Kendra and Michael!
