Welcome to AsukaSumi.com

After several months of writing a Japanese blog to chronicle my work as a baroque violinist in Amsterdam/Europe and Tokyo/East Asia, I have decided to start a bona fide website in English.  Thus, AsukaSumi.com.

I will be adding to the site in the months to follow with the following projected themes:

– upcoming performances

– thoughts on music performance practice

– occasional notes about research in the field, particularly dealing with Italian violin repertoire from the 17th century

I hope that you enjoy the site and will make it one that you follow.
