albrown_18 posted a topic in The PegboxHello! I have had this violin for a little while and I would like to know more about it. On the inside it says “Tone ____ and Repaired by A.W Van Dorsten, No. 542 Maker Dec. 1916” I also am really interested in the design on the back, and would like to know more about who could have put the design on it, and if it was common to have that design. Thank you!
The Heller-Burnham Violin Duo
Burnham Violin Co. posted a topic in The FingerboardI would very much like to share with the world a record that my parents (Lesley Heller and James Burnham) made many years ago. Like so many, I believe they never received the recognition they deserved as first rate violinists. The album includes the Sarasate Navarra, Moszkowski Op. 71 for two violins and piano featuring pianist Mary Louise Vetrano, and Spohr Op. 67 in a minor for two violins. The recording can be found on Spotify here. The album is also available on Amazon and iTunes for purchase, if anyone so desires to support. Thank you

Your favorite modern violinist
Kallie posted a topic in The FingerboardHi there, This is probably a topic which has been discussed to death, but maybe some would still find it interesting. Who is your favorite modern (still living and playing) violinist, and why? Personally I love the way Joshua Bell plays. He is the only top violinist Ive seen live, and what an amazing performance it was. This was back in 2012 when he came to South-Africa. He performed the 4 Seasons, and the Bach Double violin concerto with a player here. Ive read that many people don't at all care for his interpretations of pieces, but I really enjoy listening to him. Another violinist I really like is Katica Illenyi. She is probably not as well known as the other popular violinists, but her control over the bow and vibrato is excellent! Here is a clip which is just beautiful. the way she plays the Czardas in another video is also astounding. Ofcourse there are many more I could mention, like Anne Akiko Meyers, Hilary Hahn, Maxim Vengerov, Itzhak Perlman, the list goes on and on. So who is your favorite, and why?
