Thanks for the Prof. Domine's afternoon Concert on April 13th at the Platt Library. With participation of outstanding musicians Ruth Bruegger, Glenn E. Grab, Larry Muradian, and James Domine on guitar. It was a perfect quartet, a performance that added a new brilliance to selected Prof. Domine's compositions.

I really loved the December concert. You couldn't ask for a better evening.

Dear Maestro Domine:
Your Saturday December 10th concert was spectacular.
The Violin Concerto #1 in G major was beautifully performed by Ruth Bruegger and was admired by 'this' former student of the violin. The soloist's performance did justice to the technical challenge she encountered. The concerto in itself was a masterpiece in that the beginning was reminiscent of Mozart but metamorphosed into the uniqueness of Domine. What is especially savored and admired is that a man in his early 20's composed it.
While contemporary, unsophisticated 'so-called' music in our current culture earns composers/performers fame, fortune and adulation, I lament that a genius of immense talent creates an opus with intricate chromatic development and elegantly expansive exposition and lives in anonymity and whose work is relegated to the "unknown" repertoire.
What perplexes and bothers me is that an "institution of higher education" is oblivious to that genius possessing great talent and love of teaching and thus threatens his participation in the world of scholarship and the sharing of the love of the fine arts.
Dvorak's "5th"/ "9th" was especially appreciated---I love this piece and the San Fernando Valley Symphony did a mighty fine job.
Paul Milberg, M.D.

I am so pleased to read the other guest responses to the December 1 concert. We are in accord that the program was wonderful, and that Maestro Domine's Violin Concerto #1 in G major is an outstanding work. Long may he give his admirers the pleasure of hearing James Domine compositions in performance!

The concert on Dec. 1st was excellent. Not only was the program very enjoyable, Jim's violin concerto was everything I had expected. Obviously Jim has a full understanding of the violin and combined with Ruth's skills, the concerto was beautiful.

We just heard a great new Violin Concerto [the Domine Violin Concerto performed Dec 1, 2012]. We loved it! So did the audience! Congratulations to James Domine, and to Ruth Bruegger for her masterful performance.

Your new symphony, played at the May 2012 concert was spectacular, and an amazing piece of work. Can't wait for your next one.
March 02, 2012 @09:34 pm
We love your concerts and all of the effort you put into making great music! Thank you!

Looking forward to hearing some beautiful music performed by the orchestra.

The November 26 Concert was fantastic. You could not have heard a better orchestra or better program. I expect weâ€™ll be hearing more of James Domineâ€™s Piano Concerto No. 3 â€“ itâ€™s a hit waiting to be discovered. This is going to be a great season.

James; wow. Apparently there were and are, many more mountains left to conquer. You are an inspiration. We plan to see you at theatre maestro!

Wow...I knew we have an L.A Phil. Orchestra, but a San Fernando Valley orchestra?!?, wow...I frequently go to concerts, but, I have yet to attend a Classical concert. I would be most delighted to attend to one of your concerts!

Love the music and hope to make the next concert. Thanks.

The Benefit Concert on Jan 22, 2011 was fabulous. There is no place else to hear this music, and played so well.
January 18, 2011 @02:23 pm
I just want to let you know how much I enjoy hearing you play. My cousin, Gary Herbig, sends me links to some of your concerts and I so enjoy listening to you. Thank you for your part in making the world a more civil place through your beautiful music.
