My name is Sandro Ladu and I love violin. I enjoy listening to all violinists from all eras. Hirshhorn, Shumsky, Ysaye, Sitkovetsky, Rabin, Neveu are some of the older generation that I listen to. Symphony is a magical environment for me, it's a grand meeting of all the fellow wizards to play masterpieces. Quartet is fun too! For the last three summers I have attended the Brevard Music Festival. It's an amazing music festival in the forest with all kinds of species. Gil Shaham is a great favorite of mine, such a clean and piercing authentic sound. I really enjoyed his Saint-Saens No.3 Violin Concerto and his Paganini Sonata for Violin and Guitar CD.
