I've poked around on here for a couple years but never bothered to sign up until now. I've had a disc with the Sibelius violin concerto floating around for a long time that I like, but the disc didn't have any information on the violinist. It turns out that my phone can listen to the recording and figure out who it is: Bruno Zwicker (violin) and Carlo Pantelli with the Slovak Philharmonic Orchestra. I've never heard of Bruno Zwicker, but I've always liked this recording. Does anyone have any information about him? All I can find online is a few references to CDs, and one mention in a violinist.com post (the last comment here): https://www.violinist.com/discussion/archive/7052/
Evidently he isn't all that well known, at least on the internet, but personally I like the recording. Maybe it's because it was the first one I listened to.
I'll put links to the recording on YouTube if anyone wants to listen. I'd be interested if anyone knows anything about him!
