Violinist's Nightmare on Live Television

Violinist Kristine Balanas was in the middle of completely owning Wieniawski’s Polonaise Brilliante No. 1 during the Latvian Music Awards when the unthinkable happened. Her E string, until then a faithful and supportive colleague, let her down and snapped. 


As is always the way with these situations, it’s about how you react. And Kristine was an absolute pro - quickly grab the Latvian Symphony Orchestra concertmaster’s violin and leave him to deal with the consequences. The show must go on.
