  1. I have neighbors too and I use a mute. I agree with adante, dont get an electric violin, get a good acoustic violin and good mute.

    Ysaye

    I saw a book for sale once about Ysaye by Lev Ginsburg. I think he wrote books about tartini and several other great composer violinists, it may be worth checking out Cheers _/ Scott
  3. get the jazz piano book and the real book vol 1 every real book has a chord dictionary at the beginning
  4. Im a big fan of Jamie Laredo - was he a concertmaster? I saw a Perlman video once with him as a concertmaster if I remember correctly.
  5. Most people know that Milstein transcribed Memphisto Waltz which is horrendously difficult on violin Other than that, I have Rachael Barton's CD Hope that helps Cheers _/ Scott
  6. thanks - im a really big fan I have always wondered how he can play like that as messed up as his hand is - I always wanted to see those three fingers play at that speed
  7. these may not be appropriate for your level of cello playing but... the duos by kodaly ravel and gliere come to mind as personal favorites
  8. If I remeber correctly I think he was in the move "the cliburn" a file about the renouned piano competition, I saw it a long time ago so Im not sure, am getting old
  9. Most of you already know this probably but... I read in the guaneri hill book that people originally thought the cannon was marked as 1745 (which was after his death) then they thought the 5 was a 3 and now they think its a 2 so the cannon they now believe was made in 1742 - the same year as the ex heifetz and ex dushkin (zukerman's violin)
  10. Thanks for the prompt response Mr Darnton sir It is true that putting the bridge in a bad place could damage the instrument?
  11. A few questions for you luthier people When I change my strings, the bridge comes loose and I have to slide it back into place... 1)How do I know where to put the bridge? 2)The placement of the bridge affects the tone right? 3)It is true that putting the bridge in a bad place could damage the instrument? 4)Any advice about how to know where to put the bridge? 5)How do you know if the sound post needs to be moved or checked? 6)Does low action affect the tone? 7)Does low action make a violin easier to play?
  12. shocking I learned so much from him over they years, and have been listening every day for years now, my friends and I used to mimic him, always saying hellooooo there he will be missed
  13. Did anyone see that skit on saturday night live about the dollar?
  14. anything from op 91 especially the 13 min long reger a min chaconne
  15. I'd play hindemith after i can play alot of bach with finesse which is likely to be never in my case kudos on the appreciation for the music of reger, other than bach reger wrote my favorite sonatas for solo violin
