Nel Cor on the Viola: Incredible

April 9, 2021, 2:20 PM · Ferenc Illenyi is a long time friend. He does not teach but he has been kind to guide me on many occasions.

He is a member of the first violins of the Houston Symphony Orchestra. A few years ago he decided to start playing the viola. He is always first in line to do tough things and here he plays the famously difficult Paganini Nel Cor on the viola.

I hope you enjoy it.
