  1. Ooo I also wanna say thanks for that link, Steve.
  2. HKV brought this up a long time ago, you might wanna do a search on it.
  3. I'm glad to hear that he has been upgraded, i will say some prayers tonight.
  4. I have to agree that when my pirrazi's settled in they really lost a lot of what i liked about them...i never liked the A string though. Too nasaly and weak compared to the power of the lower strings. Right now the violin I am using is strung with helicores and i think the g and d are wonderful but the e is a very annoying one, I have never seemed to find the definative E...gotta keep looking I suppose.
  5. I've played 3 accolay concertos soo they do exist, but I have always been under the impression he was viextemps as well.
  6. I loved my evah's! i had them on my old violin a 100yr old magini copy and they made it sound so wonderful, but the sound quality quickly faded, i only had them on for a month or so because my violin had gotten crushed a month after, but all the strings werestill intact, maybe i should put them on the one i am using now, until i can find my new violin.
  7. Maybe you could play some excerpts for the kids and take a vote on which they like the most...? If they like it chances are the time duration, etc should not bore them.
  8. For cello, elgar elgar elgar!! I love that piece, it is just fantastic! For violin, I would have to say Sibelius, Mozart does nothing for me, prokofiev one is better imho, Schumann is nice and vastly underdone. So in my opinion again on violin either schumann or sibelius.
  9. That was an AWESOME recording, probably the best I have heard! However, when is Erick's playing not awesome? Thanks Stephen, Kabal, and of course Erick! I do also hope Erick feels 120% better soon!
  10. I am pretty tired of the alter ego's too. I was on a little computer break and came back and saw the Q and A game which started all the little alter egos, IMO that is.
  11. I really liked your intonation and the tone was awesome, but I think maybe you could bring out the higher notes at measures 29 to the end of your recording, if u did that I would say perfect.
  12. I got a cd of Perlman playing all of the Mozart Violin Concerto's some sheet music and we actually got a grand piano for 2500 which is such a steal. It was from an old friend of my dads who gave it to us because my dad liked it so, it was like an in honor of gift kind of.
  13. Well I have heard all this wonderful talk about Scott Cao's violins and how they are exceptional for the money, but I was wondering has anyone tried his bows?? I have seen them offered on his website, but yet have heard nothing about them. If anyone has any info on them it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  14. Thats great to hear you love your new violin!! What a great Christmas Present!! I hope you enjoy it for many years to come!!
