Concert Performance 1956-1982 Overview

Before beginning her studies at the Conservatoire National Supérieur in Paris, Ursula Bagdasarjanz was awarded 1st prize at the Concours Bellan in Paris, France. While still studying, she made her first radio recording with Radio Paris-Inter. Many were to follow with the same station. After having completed her studies with the "Premier Prix de Violon", she returned to Switzerland. Her substantial concert career led her, in addition to solo performances in Switzerland, to a long concert tour in Spain, Germany and Finland, where she became the Turku City Orchestra soloist. In Switzerland, she repeatedly performed as soloist with great orchestras and famous conductors, such as the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich and the city orchestras of Winterthur (in Winterthur, Glarus and Uster), St. Gallen, Aarau, Solothurn and Olten as well as the "Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana". Ursula Bagdasarjanz gave violin concerts and recitals at many music centres abroad: in Switzerland and, among others, in Barcelona, Berlin, Heidelberg, Darmstadt, Zurich, Winterthur, Geneva, Schaffhausen, Basel, Bern, Rorschach, Rapperswil, Herisau, and Stans. Her recordings in the radio studios of Zurich, Lugano, Paris and Berlin contributed significantly to making her more renowned as a Swiss soloist.

Famous quotes containing the words concert and/or performance:

    Proportion ... You can’t help thinking about it in these London streets, where it doesn’t exist.... It’s like listening to a symphony of cats to walk along them. Senseless discords and a horrible disorder all the way.... A concert of Brobdingnagian cats. Order has been turned into a disgusting chaos. We need no barbarians from outside; they’re on the premises, all the time.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)

    They say all lovers swear more performance than they are able, and yet reserve an ability that they never perform; vowing more than the perfection of ten, and discharging less than the tenth part of one.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
