I was wondering and this question has stuck to me for months.Why aren't most violin virtuosos also composers? I mean with the rigurious training that they go through to develope their musicality and hours of practice,music theory, solfage music history,sight reading,etc,etc,etc, combined with the natural talent that is a must in order to be a sucessful international artist.Few classical artists are also composers I assume with all of the studies and training mentioned above composition would be a breeze for soloists.
