I'm curious, how many people can play La Rondes Des Lutins? I think this is one of few pieces that I will stop to listen to and watch the person playing regardless of the condition(even if my hair was on fire).
I'm just amazed by the shifting fingers then quickly up to artificial harmonics, and the crazy left hand pizzacatos. I have heard many recordings on youtube by various artists with different instruments. I think my favorite one is by Chloe Hanslip:
I find her style almost identical to Itzhak Perlman, I think the difference I hear is probably the recording technology.
