    Default A short quiz



    This thread is now rather dead. So, I propose a very short violinists quiz:

    1) Who gave Elgar's v.c. first in public?
    2) When and where did Heifetz made his very first recordings?
    3) What was Szigety's real surname?
    4) Who was a Hubay's pupil that became a famous orchestra conductor?
    5) And who was another Hubay's pupil that wrote an extremely famous short piece
    for violin and piano, his one and only known work that any violinist has recorded at least once?
    Enjoy..

    No, it was Kreisler. Pity he never recorded it inmediately.
    And yes, it was Jeno Blau (Eugene Ormandy).There's a CD with some of his violin recordings. (I don have it)

    Why would they hire him for the job, if they had their own English-Kreisler?

    Kreisler's Elgar first play was in 1910. Sammons didn´t recorded it until 1929.
    Kreisler should have recorded it. In 1910 he had his full technique. A sad lost
    opportunity.And it would have been the very first recording.

    Very well Manuel! iu deserv a primium!. Very few know that Dinicu had an "academic"
    formation on violin with Hubay, and for a while was concertino of the Bucarest SO, before
    forming his own gipsy group and began to make good money. Heifetz hear him playing
    his Hora Stacatto on some caffé, and at once demand to get the sheet. The rest is history.
    But if you listen to Dinicu playing it, you'll learn what a real gipsy style is, and how
    that píece should be played.

    I remember you broadcasted various pieces by Dinicu in your radio program some years ago. I taped them then.
