My new favorite violinist is Itzhak Perlman. I believe his rendition of Zigeunerweisen by Pablo de Sarasate is fantastic, and showcases true mastery of the violin. The song itself is a masterpiece in its own right. My favorite parts are the last two sections: (3) Un poco pi" lento, and (4) Allegro molto vivace, which starts at the 6 minute mark in the video. Definitely check it out!

He's actually one of my favorite violinists as well. Large fingers for violinists can be detrimental, but I think he developed a technique to negate most of that hindrance. If I recall, he also had polio from a young age. Although he might not be my #1 favorite violinist, he's definitely the one I respect the most for overcoming such adversities.

Oh, so you have good eyes and good taste? Nice ;p I've never really played the violin myself, so I never thought about finger-size serving as a hindrance in some cases, but it makes alot of sense. He's one of a kind though, so it's no surprise he was able to overcome such a thing. Another one of his best renditions would be the title song for Schindler's List.

I agree, Perlman is awesome. I know nothing about the violin, but after hearing Bell/Gergiev and Perlman/Ormandy on the Tchaikovsky concerto on YouTube, I'm determined I prefer the latter interpretation, despite the fact that I like Gergiev. :P

I used to play the violin, and my teacher (former teacher) is blind ... violinists have so many adversities themselves.

Just checked it out. The opening was really good, but the vocals turned me off. It went from being a modern twist of a classical note to being engulfed by this random guy singing. It's also probably because I thought this was gonna be an instrumental song like the one I shared above. I really liked the opening though.

True, are you into Irish folk music?

Cohead and Cambria do a lot of violin. I like them for that.

I've never really listened to Irish folk music, so I can't really say whether I like it or not.

I do like the Dropkick Murphys but that's not folk music. Any good suggestions for me to check out?

Ew, I hate the Dropkick Murphys especially because they've stereotyped Irish music in their song Shovin' Off to Boston.

I personally Like the Dubliners.

Have you listened to the Pogues? They're usually considered one of the grandfathers of Irish-punkiness, which Dropkick would be part of, as would Flogging Molly.

I've always liked the Kingston Trio and the Dubliners; also the Chieftans, the Irish Rovers, Fiddler's Green, and others I can't immediately recall.

If I'm super upset, I'll spend the night getting drunk and loudly singing old Irish songs. Good coping mechanism.
