Tarantelle opus 22
Decision opus 53
Is an Erhu a Chinese violin or a small cello?

I just added 2 Vieuxtemps video's added on Youtube.
The most beautiful slow part of a violinconcerto ever written (in my opinion) of the 7th violinconcerto of Vieuxtemps.
And a salonpiece for violin and piano with about the same photo's I made and which I found on internet with google pictures.
