This Street Violinist Attaches A Camera To The End Of His Violin And Plays Vivaldi To Perfection. WOW.
Pavel Frumin is a street musician who teamed up with GoPro to capture some really amazing footage of his everyday life. He goes out to his favorite spot in the park and chooses his bow and sets up his cameras. He then proceeds to blow everyone away with his fantastic skills as he plays the last few minutes of Antonio Vivaldi’s “Summer” from the Four Seasons. That was mind blowing.
I briefly remember trying to play something on my friend’s violin when I was a child. She hated her lessons and hated to practice, so one day I was at her house and her mother reminded her that she needed to put in her 30 minutes of practice time. I was playing with some of her new toys so I said that I wouldn’t mind staying and listening. That’s when she got a brilliant idea (as brilliant as 9 year olds can be) that I should practice for her and her mother would think that she practiced when really it was me. The screeching sounds that came out of that room could not have fooled anybody, least of all her mother. I was quickly sent home after that, but it’s still one of my favorite memories.
Perhaps if I had begged my mom for a violin, I may have found a new passion, but I’d never be as good as this guy playing on the street!
