I was just browsing through YouTube, when I found this video of somebody playing the Grieg Violin Sonata no. 3. As it turns out, it is one of our very own forum members (and the Violin Mastery video which frequently appears in our advertisements column on the forum), Clayton Haslop.
Now I must say, this is just first class playing, from all aspects. I have not enjoyed a performance so much in ages. Truly heart-felt and without hysterionics, this is the real deal. I would rather listen to this man playing than many of today's so-called first class violinists. I wanted to cry, listening to the second movement.
I encourage everybody to take a look and witness some truly great violin playing in the modern day era:
Grieg Sonata no. 3:

He has some more videos on YouTube but I haven't had an opportunity to view them yet.
