Dear Dianne

Maria used to delete her posts by accident too. The bookmark button and the delete button are so close to each other. But if you enter the post (as if you wanted to post an answer) you can tick the bookmark button with no delete button there.

Like Elke I was also wondering how Treblette was coming along.  She was playing so well the last time you posted her playing but now, simply Wow!  And it is great that she is planning for her future.  Beautifully played.

Barb when I saw this video and read the story of how many hours these young players practiced, when I saw their professionalism, heard their sound, and was mesmerized by the vibrato and fingering, not to mention the sound, on the viola, when I saw Treblette was getting ready for her last two years of high school but her friend would be attending college next year, I just felt so proud and happy for them both, that I babbled endlessly and then decided to let others just see it for themselves, those who have been following here for the last 8 or 9 years especially (which is not even me!). I think she started when she was 6 and her father would post here and help us with feedback, and post videos of his daughter doing bow strokes and recitals. How she handled that bow always amazed me. I wish I could still see those early videos to learn from them. There was one in particular that I wish I could watch again, where she was demonstrating a fast brushed spiccato or staccato mid bow that was so controlled and even, and sounded fabulous... Treblettes bow control is so amazing. Many times I delete posts by accident, hitting the key by accident, but this time I just reposted a simpler post. But here are my thoughts! And thanks for asking!

Dear Dianne

I instantly knew whome you were talking about as I read your deleted post and you said her father used to post.

The violist I had not recognised as her friend. Now as you mention it I can remember the 2 girls playing together in Treblette´s room. Her hair has gotten darker.

Why did you delete the first post? It was so well written and a joy to read.

Thank you Dianne for sharing such a special report and a special recording.

I agree Elke, She is playing at such a high level. And the article was interesting to read as well. Her friend is playing at a very high level of viola now, and it sounds wonderful when she plays out.

How special, Dianne! I had been thinking about Treblette lately, wondering where she was now - well, I am not surprised! She was quite something even four or five years ago! How special to see and hear her again.
