Hi , Welcome to my newsfeed

This is a place, where I'd like to announce news related to my musical life. Since this is my first entry, I'd like to start with a little retrospective of the year 2011, which has been incredibly exciting.

The thing ,which probably created the biggest buzz, was the indonesian airing of the JJ Royal Coffee commercial ("I only drink the best") ,which featured me as the Violin playing talent, banging my head to beats of Vivaldi. We had a great time producing it, and I think this fun is visible in the commercial. I had the honour to be able to record the music for the clip at the Fox studios in Sydney with members of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra!

A little funny episode: after the last shot I hopped over to Bali for well-deserved vacation( I thought so) and got my hair cut. Guess what: I got a call, that we had to reshoot the last scene of the TVC : the testimonial!!

Everybody was in shock, when they got to know I got my hair cut.

So ,here a little secret: "I only drink the best(original slogan), and have extensions in my hair!" haha

 

2011 also saw the release of my first album " Bach 'n' Blues" which I am indeed proud of. Recording it with Anastassiya Dranchuk had the combined pleasure of intense focus and indulgence- my recipe towards success.

Yesterday I went to a party in Berlin, and met some folks I haven't seen in a while. They were telling me, my album got a good Strad review, which got me all excited. All those who don't know: the Strad is kind of the bible- magazine to everything related to the string instrument world. Being reviewd by them is already an honour in itself.

 

I gotta go practise now, have to learn the Vivaldi 4 seasons for my Debut in Laeiszhalle Hamburg, one of the most beautiful Halls in Germany I am honoured to play in.

See ya at the show,

Iskandar
