Today is Russian-born violin virtuoso, VC Young Artist Yury Revich’s 29th birthday!
Things you didn’t know about Yury:
- He is colorblind and sometimes mixes up the A and D strings when he sets up his violin
- He once arrived at a concert in Italy, but it was the wrong city! There were two towns which have the same name
- He once improvised on stage as an encore but announced it as the world premiere of a piece by a non-existing composer. It was a big success!
