Yuval Yaron plays the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto (live video)

One of today's great violinists who I've alway enjoyed listening to is the Israeli born violinist Yuval Yaron who now lives in the US. Aside from the big violin aficionados out there, many of the people I talk to in the field have sadly never heard of this great violinist. A musician of this caliber deserves to be heard and celebrated!
To give you a little background on the artist, he studied with Jascha Heifetz at USC and Josef Gingold at IU. He rose to prominence after winning the International Jean Sibelius Violin Competition in 1975, and toured internationally as a soloist. He has also devoted his life to teaching at both Indiana University and UCSB. Like his colleague Eugene Fodor, Mr. Yaron has used a Sergio Peresson violin.
You can hear some great influence from his teachers in this mind blowing performance of the Mendelssohn. I hope you enjoy it!
