Can someone identify the violinist in this recording?
Ive been trying to figure out who the violinist is in this recording of Svendsen Romance: https://youtu.be/wZ_N7rpbG-c
If anyone can figure this out and the album it came from, Id be so grateful.
I think I know the person who made this video. I don't have his contact information, but he visited a Dutch forum quite often. I'm not sure if he is still active there because I don't come there any more myself. But I can try to ask him your question there. When he gives a reaction I will let you know
Thanks, I really appreciate that!
Hi Nathan, I made contact with the person of the YouTube video, but unfortunately he doesn't remember who the violinist is or the track that he used for this video. So back to the source didn't help this time, sorry.
I'm glad someone else likes this piece besides me! I'm working on it right now (too). Gotta be someone with that nervous-fast-sounding vibrato. I don't think it's Heifetz. His vibrato is normally wider and he would have played more "Heifetz slides."
Nice old recording! From the style, it doesn't sound like one of the famous oldies... but am interested nonetheless to find out who it is.
It is Herman Krebbers, recorded in the '60s.
I kept expecting it to go into the 2nd movement of Grieg's 3rd sonata during the piu mosso sections. I was under the impression that that dude used a good deal of recordings of the Naxos label, but I could be way off.
My guess is that it was taken from an other youtube video, that now is gone (?).
Your profile picture looks like one Hilary Hahn used for an album lol.
Mattias, you are right. The maker of the video looked a bit more and found some more information. It is Herman Krebbers. With the information I got, It must be this album I think: https://www.discogs.com/Herman-Krebbers-Svendsen-Saint-Sa%C3%ABns-Vieuxtemps-Paganini-Svendsen-Paganini-Vieuxtemps-Saint-Sa%C3%ABns/release/13268783
Krebbers's old buddy Theo Olof recorded the most beautiful solo Bach I've ever heard. His chaconne is utterly unique to me in conveying - and it's hard to write this because it sounds so imprecise and screamingly subjective, but - LOVE.
Wow! Krebbers was André Rieu's teacher. And Frank Peter Zimmerman's. I see that Krebbers has recorded concertos with Rieu conducting the orchestra. Cool!
