IDYLLWILD TOWN CRIER -- When opportunities arise for a renewal of interest in any particular subject, especially in the area of live musical performances, it is in the nature of this reviewer to investigate. One such opportunity came into play last Monday evening, November 4, with the return of Idyllwild Arts Academy alumnus Jassen Todorov (class of 1994) to the campus from his post as professor of violin at San Francisco State University. Considering the 25-year hiatus, as well as his academic background at Harid Conservatory in Florida and the Eastman School in upstate New York, the follow-up to his return visit was encouraging enough with the prospective survey of Ludwig van Beethoven’s compositions for violin and piano in the works.
