I think it´s so sad that almost all of the solo violinstars are beating the old warhorses to death instead of focusing on new works
If you have nothing truly new and interesting to say then you shouldn´t record for instance Beethoven´s violin concerto
Another thing that most people don´t think about is that many of for instance the new complexity works are too hard for the greatest violin soloist that focus on old Warhorses.
How many of todays violinstars can learn to play or even sightread Klaus K. Hubler´s third String Quartet for instance?
I would be surprised if even 3 of the 20 highest paid violin soloist in the world would be able sightread it and play it well
