    Itzhak Perlman!!! The best! And David Oistrakh (all violin). Vengerov is good too, and Spivakov.

    The best cellist I think was Jacqueline du Pre.

    There is a violist I really like, but the problem is I don't know his name.

    I like Bernstein, He is a great conductor also he is a great teacher. I have watched lots of videos were he speaks about music.
    He has that great skill to explain "Hard" stuff so well that it becomes easier to understand.
    Of course i don't agree with everything he says, but i always enjoy listening him when he talks about music.

    Having gone through the entire list of favorites, I am somewhat distressed that the incredible pianist Valentina Lisitsa was not mentioned. There are a number of astonishing youtube presentations but the ones that stand out are Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody #2 and another Liszt blockbuster, "Totentanz". Despite her grueling schedule, Ms Lisitsa responded to an e-mail I sent. She is a very
    exceptional person. Has anyone else out there seen/heard her?

    I've a lot of personal favourites among musicians. My very very top are:
    Conductors: Giulini, Karajan, Boulez, Klemperer, Jochum
    Performers: Aimard, Zimerman, Arrau, the Alban Berg quartet, Rostropovich, Lipatti, Richter,
    Singers: Sutherland, Tebaldi, Horne, Mingardo, Lauri Volpi, Taddei, Talvela, Nilsson, Fischer-Dieskau, Vickers.
    Giulini, Lipatti and Tebaldi all my all time favourite artists.

    I've seen a lot of her stuff. She's very good with some pieces (Her Liszt Ave Maria is a personal favorite) but I'm still not fully sold. My main issue with her is that I feel like she sometimes has difficulty getting depth out of a piece in satisfying way. For example if you put her Rachmaninoff prelude 5 up against Ritchers or Gilels it crumbles pretty quickly.. I know these are giants but whatever, that's my standard of "incredible" :P

    Valentina is terrible imo. But if i want to watch a piece being played incredibly fast i check her out.

    I'm not familiar enough with a variety of musicians to make very many judgments, but I know I've never been disappointed by a Marc-Andre Hamelin purchase. I'm aware that he has his share of critics out there on the internet, but I'm certainly not one of them.
