It was mentioned on another thread that the real differences between violinists, particularly between amateurs and pros, is the last 5 - 10% of skill.
It'd be interesting to explore: What's that last 5 to 10% of difference, both from the perspective of the (perceptive) listener, and from the perspective of actual technical and musical execution?
EDIT: My intent was to ask what that last 5-10% of refinement was, more so than the amateur/pro distinction, which can be pretty blurry.
