  1. Hi, could anyone comment on the diplomas issued by the two bodies in terms of status, difficulty, standard.....etc? Thanks.
  2. He is among the best Chinese violinists nowadays and was the background music player of the emotional movie 'Together' about a child prodigy and his relationship with his 'father'. There is another video about the growing up history of this gentleman on the same web page but in Chinese( Cantonese ). I can provide the link if anybody is interested to watch.
  3. Good video for all to enjoy http://www.rthk.org.hk/rthk/tv/lichunyunco...t/20040407.html and click on either player for streaming download!
  4. Hi, I think the easiest while the most romantic piece is the Wieniawski concerto No.2 2nd movement!!
  5. Could anyone comment on these Chinese instruments in terms of their quality and price? color> color>
  6. Did anyone come across these Chinese instruments and comment on their quality and price? color>
  7. I think you may consider fiddlers friends. They are comfortable,attractive and inexpensive.
  8. Congratulations! Anyway the bows you've mentioned are all from the same workshops in Brazil made in German style. They are of equivalent qualities.
  9. C. Santos bows are good and they are made in Brazil in German style. Some of them are with snake wood frogs and pernambuco sticks with full nickel-silver mount.
  10. The gentleman that you mentioned is not a small potato. He was the ex-concert-master and conductor of the London Phil. Orchestra.
  11. Would anyone tell me how to get a free music sheet for violin?
  12. I ordered a book from their online shop a few months ago also facing a delayed delivery, slow customers service....etc
  13. I've got one in Hong Kong at about US$28. The sound and visual qualities are just acceptable but the Rabin's parts were not well performed as expected. I personally enjoy the Bach's double concerto by the Oistrakhs.
  14. The Theme from ' Schindler's List ' by Itzhak Perlman.
  15. Thank you very much for your positive responses.
  16. My son is considering to study in Singapore. Does anybody have a good recommendation for a violin teacher for him there ? He is 13 and just passed his grade 8 ABRSM exam.
  17. Thanks. According to Dennis G. plowright's book, he was associated with another maker Paul Bisch. There are 2 auction records on this site. Do you have any idea about his violins?
  18. Does anybody know this French maker and his violins?
  19. I think Hermann Lowendall is a trade name of a workshops violin.
  20. For those who are interested to see one. You may go to www.telfordviolins.com and there is a Lowendall with double signatures for sale.
  21. My opinion is those violins with double signatures are the best Lowendalls followed by with one labelled signature then without any signature and lastly unlabelled. Hope this may help.
  22. Thanks BobH. I got mine as a Lowendall's Artist's Violin engraved on the scroll with two signatures from a UK dealer a few months ago at about $2200. Its tone is strident and powerful. How about yours? May I know how much you've spent on it? BTW,is double signatures indicated the item made by Lowendall himself? Thanks.
  23. Anybody knows whether there will be DVD or VCD format for these fantastic videos? I could only found one David Oistrakh's Beethoven concerto DVD on the market as compensations.
