If you liked the first, maybe you wouldn't like these:
1) This nasty fellow is said to have been a good amateur violinist, but he had little time to play because he was busy making final plans
2) This guy believed that he can play the violin, and once he asked Gregor Piatigorsky how had he played.. Gregor answered "Well, relativelly well".
3) This violinist and composer of short pieces had a difficult sonata dedicated to him. He left few recordings and have been almost forgotten even in his Mediterranean and sunny country
4) This still live female violinist took part in the first famous Wieniawsky contest. She made many great recordings. Those on vinyls are very much wanted and expensive.
5) This Russian great violinist died young and he's almost unknown in the West. He'd a fantastic technique. He share surname with a famous composer..
Correct Vincent! To all of you; if you see any vinyl by her in a very good condition, buy it. If you have any, keep it.
I recognised 4!!! As for 5 ??? Maybe Boris Goldstein? or the student of Oistrakh that played at the queen Elizabeth??? I don't know his name???
Well done,Anne. Why don't you show us how smart are you?. Write your answers!
About 5), read carefully the question.
2 is Einstein:)
No Eric; no Musso but contemporary. A much sinister character.
Is #1 Heinrich Himmler?
No Heinrich, but close, very close. More clever and cruel than him.
#1- My Ex-Wife!!!!!! Ooops, she didn't play any musical instruments.
#1- Adolph Hitler.
For number 5 here I go: maybe Boris Goldstein or Josef Hassid. I do not know ennough on Alexei Michlin. I might be totally wrong!!! Hassid really died young and was a very talented violinist... + Josef Suk is a composer. I think their is a Golstein composer too but I don't know how famous.
Number 1 is:
Reinhard Tristan Eugen Heydrich (sometimes incorrectly spelled as Reinhardt, March 7, 1904 - June 4, 1942) was an Obergruppenführer in the Nazi paramilitary corps - the SS led by Heinrich Himmler. He was nicknamed The Butcher of Prague, The Blond Beast and Der Henker (German for the hangman).
Anne, Anne please!. I said that this guy was Russian and had the same surname as a certain
famous composer. So, no Hassid , nor Goldstein. Doesen't any of you ever heard of Andrei
Yes, Roland. The good Heydrich, who excel on everything he tried, including to became the coldest and cruelest executor of the final solution.
Yes, Andrei Korsakoff, formidable technitian, powerful sound and big talent. Unknown in the west like several dozens more from Russia, Ukrania, Armenia and other vicinity countries.
PD: the answer to the pending quiz is No.6
The answer to no. 3, not 6 is Manuel Quiroga, the dedicatee of Ysaÿe's 6th solo sonata.
OK, is done. Did you enjoy it? Later on, I'll think on other, but no so easy.
Sorry as you saw, I didn't go check the answers in google! I really though Hassid was Russian (in the Soviet era). Oups...
Don't warry Anne-Marie; everybody has wrong information. e.g.many people thing that Francescatti and Ricci were Italian, Franck was French or Joachim was German.
