On a cold Sunday afternoon, Cape Girardeau’s homegrown violin virtuoso Liesl Schoenberger used the warm confines of the Shuck Recital Hall to bring her audience the snappy tempo of Fritz Kreisler’s 1910 Vienna, the sad longing of a waltz beat from Johannes Brahms and the toe-tapping joy of a Texas swing tune.
Her playing is, of course, of the highest order. She demonstrates flawless technique and deep musical sensitivity.
“Of all the hundreds of fiddlers I have heard over the years, Liesl has the finest tone of any. The sound of her violin is absolutely amazing and she uses it to its fullest! She is a perfectionist and accepts nothing less than the best in her music. On top of all of that, she is a fine young lady and a pleasure to work with.
