Happy almost-birthday Sandor Vegh! :)
From Larry BrandtHere's a list of how many violinists from the previous list are born in what months:
Posted on May 15, 2006 at 01:04 PM
As one can clearly see, your chances of becoming a successful violinist are greatest, by quite a margin, if you are born in the month of August! If you are born in April or May you may as well stop trying :P
Of course, I was born on the 6th of August ;)
From Sander MarcusYou forgot Jack Benny

Menuhin the day before me, and Cerovcek the day after. Oistrakh 4 days after... I'll take that.
From Hannah FreyWhen I was studying with Linda Cerone, she mentioned that we shared the same birthday--June 7, along with Jaime Laredo, and George Szell (not a violinist, but still impressively fun!). I saw Leopold Auer has that one too.
Posted on May 15, 2006 at 08:34 PM
From Jonathan FrohnenOooo I share a birthday with Auer, that's neat.

From Laurie NilesWow, Erdem! I'm totally overwhelmed! You mind if I put it in "Violin Help" so we have it forever? :)It's a wiki, so people can keep adding to it, too.

From Cheng Hooi LeeAnne Sophie Mutter - 29 June 1963 - Andrew made a mistake.
Posted on May 16, 2006 at 12:57 AM
Jacques Thibaud - 27 Sep (not sure of the year). That's my birthday too.
From Laurie NilesYes, we ought to add birth years, and also, year of death for people like Paganini. And any way to alphabetize by last name? :)
Posted on May 16, 2006 at 12:58 AM
From Jenna PottsHey, mine's today! Maybe I'm a great violinist.....

From erdem orbayYes, Laurie, It would be great !
Posted on May 16, 2006 at 10:11 PM
Then, I will add also the years

EDIT : I arranged list again and adding dates of death but unfortunately I can't sort by alphabetical :(

Posted on May 17, 2006 at 04:52 PM
From Kelsey W.How about Carl Guhr (October 30th 1787)? He was a friend and fellow musician of Paganini. The two of them often played concerts together.

Also Joseph Gingold and H.W. Ernst?
(I don't have dates for them)
From Valerie CoonWell, he's not exactly a great violinist, but S. Suzuki was born on Oct. 18, I do believe. (And I do believe this because it's my birthday...as well as Wynton Marsalis'! It's a good day. :D )

thanks for corrections
From Mister BrucieHa - I share a birthday with Zukerman and Ysaye.
Posted on May 21, 2006 at 12:20 AM
And GINGER ROGERS!
(She was famous for doing everything Fred Astaire did, but backwards and in high heels)
From Karin LinYikes, I had no idea that Vengerov and Ehnes are both younger than I am. As if I didn't feel old and "past my prime" as a violinist already...
Posted on May 21, 2006 at 05:56 AM
From Alkman JonesHello, I have a correction to make:
Posted on January 14, 2012 at 02:02 PM
Leonidas Kavakos 30 October 1967 SCORPIO
I'm Greek, and apart from Wikipedia I've checked many Greek articles, so this is definitely correct. Thank you for taking notice :)
From William WolcottEugene Fodor: March 5th
Posted on October 27, 2014 at 10:00 PM
Ossy Renardy: April 26
Ricardo Odnoposoff: February 24
From Raphael KlaymanPerhaps most remarkably, both Kreisler and Heifetz were born on February 2! (K in 1875 and H in 1901). And they both greatly admired one another.
Posted on October 27, 2014 at 10:20 PM
A much earlier post said the the majority of violinists were born in August - as was I! More specifically, I was born August 4, a day I share with Obama, Queen Elizabeth's mother, Louis Armstrong, baseball great, Roger Clemmens, actor, Billy-Bob Thorton - and most importantly, my own Mom!
PS I'ts not too late for belated presents!
From Ron MacDonaldJoseph Szigeti was born 5th September, 1892. I share his birthday and was honoured to be invited to his 80th in the Chateau de Chillon in Switzerland. Unfortunately, it was his last. Alfredo Campoli, with whom I had lessons, was born 20th October, 1906
