Sayaka Shoji plays Shostakovich’s first violin sonata

We took part in La Folle Journee de Kanazawa and listened to Sayaka Syoji playing Shostakovich’s first violin sonata. My god! She is such a brilliant violinist. No wonder she won the Premio Paganini as young as eighteen years old. She took all of us to another universe using her violin. I was greatly moved by her performance.

We were seated in the third line, just behind the conductor

We got back slowly after the concert, dropping in a garden in the centre of Kanazawa
