So Hilary Hahn is now officially a v.commie. Cool! :) Welcome Hilary, and may you long enjoy our protracted flame wars about shoulder rest usage, the endless debate over gut vs. synthetic, nit-picky technique discussions and grand Romantic rhapsodies on "What is Music??" :)
But heck, why stop there? ;-) As long as we're picking up famous people, I'd like to extend an official violinist.com invitation to:
Itzhak Perlman, for all the zillions of stories he could probably tell us, and for his sense of humor,
Maxim Vengerov, for being awesome,
Barnabás Kelemen, also for being awesome,
Any or all of the members of the Takacs Quartet, to provide the insight into the finer points of high-level chamber music that we actually don't hear around here as much as we might (the insight I mean, not the music),
Joshua Bell, to make Sydney happy :)
Gilles Apap, if he ever gets over his dislike of computers, just for the inevitable bruhaha his appearance here would cause,
Sergiu Luca, to tell Enescu stories and add his many-more-than-two cents to any Bach discussions,
Pinchas Zukerman, to argue vehemently with Sergiu Luca about proper Bach interpretation, to the general entertainment and edification of the rest of us,
And if Ilya Gringolts ever feels like coming back, he'll get no objection from me. :)Tweet
