Hi. My name is Nato, and I play violin.
My mission is to present the emotion, poetry & heart of the violin alone.
So, why do I focus just on works for violin alone?
Some of the greatest composers wrote for solo violin: J.S. Bach, for example. His Six Sonatas & Partitas for Solo Violin could be the finest in the entire violin repertoire, in fact. Or how about Paganini’s twenty-four barn-burning caprices? It showcases every trick in the violinist’s arsenal while casting a spell over the audience. Yea, the solo violin repertoire is deep and rich, and capable of immersing its listers into a theatre of sound. For me, presenting the great works for violin alone is what it’s all about.
Interested in what fiddle I play on?
I perform exclusively with a violin made by Jan B. Špidlen; an insturment inspired by the ‘Plowden’ 1735 Guarneri, del Gesù.
