    Default Guess the violinist.

    https://soundcloud.com/ivan-sokolnik...2-ccm-bias3-oz Prokofiev violin concerto written by a teenager. Hint: the soloist is not Itzhak Perlman.

    I am confused by the name of the composer.

    You say Prokofiev , the link says otherwise.

    Ivan Sokolnikov uploaded the file so he is the source of the post. The music was composed by Prokofiev.

    You are from the Netherlands? Then you know the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra of Amsterdam.

    If that's a hint: it could be Jaap van Zweden?

    That is not a hint. Be careful though. The question is a trick question.

    Here is a hint. It is the same violin soloist heard in the Tchaikovsky finale: https://soundcloud.com/ivan-sokolnik...-strings-qlsv2

    I will answer that later. Here is the story. Sokolnikov posted Beethoven Country Dance on soundcloud on April 17. The post was immediately removed because of a complaint that it was a copyright violation of material owned by the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra.

    Sokolnikov protested the ban and was successful. His Beethoven Country Dance https://soundcloud.com/ivan-sokolnik...-country-dance has been reinstated.

    These are just MIDI files, aren't they?

    So "who is the violinist" is a trick question. The answer is, you see, that there is no violinist. The music performance including the violin solo was created on the computer.
