Or I will never hear of Pavel Milyukov. Where do you find this stuff? ??

That was a truly monumental event!!!! It was literally unreal!!! And the guy plays both violin and cello!!!???? You have to b kidding!

Though i was unable to go see Rachel Barton Pine performing Beethoven's Concerto, I knew it would also be epic, as far as I know, Rachel Barton Pine is unique not just as an unbelievable violinist, but her understanding of the Beethoven concerto, being the first to ever recorded both the Clement and Beethoven, and i believe at the time the only person other than Clement and Beethoven himself know of the connection between the two concertos and thus the soul of her Beethoven concerto (as you can hear, more than or not in other performances) carries Clement and the friendship between Beethoven and Clement! The Beethoven Violin concerto is THE Violin Concerto by an infinite margin in my mind!!!!
