An Vedi, the solo violinist stopped by for a chat!

Colby: What Do You Enjoy Most About Being A Violinist?

An Vedi: I would say that it is something incredible when my hands have a “continuation” in the form of a violin. A violinist without a violin and a bow is like a fish without water. This is a special state of mind and a special mindset.

Colby: Which Track Of Yours Means The Most To You?

An Vedi: I love all the music I work on and it doesn’t matter if it’s the music of another composer or I write it myself. On my album “ConTempoRary Violin”, I especially love the music of Jay Reise, Jan Tamzejan, Collette Mourey and András Derecskei. I think this is such a unique opportunity to combine Bach’s music and music that has been written in the last 20 years on one album. Of course, Fantasy “Cranes” is especially meaningful to me because I played the first version of this piece in church after the funeral of the songwriter on whose song I wrote this Fantasy. For me, these are special memories of both deep sorrow and joy that music continues to live after the composer’s earthly life.

Colby: The First-Ever Gig You Played, Can You Remember It? How Was It?

An Vedi: It was funny. I was 4 years old, I played short pieces for violin (then I played the 1/8-sized violin). I was wearing a concert costume that my mother made – a dress and a vest. And I also had huge bows on my head with which my braids were tied. Of course, my image has changed a lot since then.

Colby:  What Do You Think Is The Key To Success As A Musician?

An Vedi: I think the success of a musician is to find their voice (whether it’s a singer or an instrumentalist), their musical direction or several directions and just do what needs to be done. Each musician has his own way, and this fact is indisputable. I think the music industry is being driven forward by independent artists across genres and even classical music. And when a musician achieves everything himself or herself and is recognized by his or her colleagues and famous musicians, this is already a significant success.

Colby: If You Wasn’t A Musician, What Job Would You Be Doing?

An Vedi: We know that history does not know the subjunctive mood. And it’s even more difficult to think about it when I’ve been in music for more than a quarter of a century. There are many wonderful activities in the world – various exact and natural sciences, architecture, painting. But we have only one life and one calling.
