How much do the supervirtuosos practice on a daily basis?
I know that Vengerov stated that he practiced 8 hours a day from the age of 5-20 but a lot less these days
Perlman stated that more then 4 hours a day is useless so we can assume that he never practiced more then 4 hours a day,
Hilary Hahn said that she practise as little as possible (often less then an hour a day these days) since living a social life is very important for her.
I don´t if thery are entirey honest though
