All really good violinists look as though they've got chronic constipation when they're playing.
rotflmao... good thing i stopped playing. and i thought being good at playing the thais meditation could get me chicks...
i think it really depends on my mood. heifetz is good when i wanna listen to classical like i listen to rock music. for more sentimental moods tho, he's much too intense and mind-blowingly whirlwind-style powerful. menuhin is awesome too, but kinda the same as heifetz... Oistrach, Milstein, Elman, Kreisler, and Ysaye i've all heard of
tho i've never heard
... i would test bath products on small furry animals to own their records. i actually don't like accardo that much, even tho he does play on a firebird (tons of brownie points there).
Perlman playing spanish tunes is a favorite when i'm feeling playful, kyung wha chung when i need a softer touch, and... i'm surprised no one's mentioned him (even tho he is a jazz violinist)... STEFAN GRAPPELLI!! he brings me close to tears sometimes... love that guy.
