  • Overview

    In the performance video segment from From the Top at Carnegie Hall, Anna JiEun Lee plays a virtuosic piece for violin by Pablo de Sarasate called Zigeunerweisen (Gypsy Airs), accompanied by pianist Christopher O'Riley. Listen for elements that are quick and dance-like, and others that are slow and mournful, as well as harmonies reminiscent of folk music. The music of the gypsies of Eastern Europe was the inspiration for the piece.

    In the profile video segment, Anna describes why music is so important to her and how she began studying the violin. She also talks about her family and what her friends think of her passion for music (they support it) and of classical music in general (they hate it).
