Many violinists that focus on contemporary music are unknown to most people even a lot of people active on this forum I guess even though they are often greater musicians then the ones that only play old warhorses and romantic repertoire.
What are your favorite violinists for contemporary music?
My personal favorite is propably Irvine Arditti but Gidon Kremer is really good too of course.
Anne-Sophie Mutter has sadly not recorded a lot of modern works even though her finest recordings are her performances of Gubaidulina´s and Penderecki´s concertos (if you ask me).
Same with Hilary Hahn her best recordings are the more modern pieces like the Schoenberg concerto for instance.
