Wow. I just saw the Grumiaux DVD and on it was a video of Ivry Gitlis playing Saint-Saens' Rondo and Capriccioso (bonus feature) . It is not only the great display of musicality and technical wizardry I've ever heard through that piece, but I felt like it was work of the devil. Reminds me of paganini...whom i have never heard play!
WOW i love this violinist. I wonder why he is so underrated. He was on art of the violin...he was funny :)
Has anyone else seen this performance?
