    Default Violinist quiz II



    OK, first quiz ended. I propose another one for your pastime

    1) Czech old virtuoso violinist very few remembers now. He made some weird arrangements and phantasies. One of them on Strauss' waltzes from Der Rosenkavalier
    2) Who made the very first recordings of Paganini's caprices (with piano)
    3) Third place on a very famous violin contest. He form a string quartet during
    the 50s and 60s., all 4 players using rare valuable instruments.
    4) Spanish violinist famous in the 30s and 40s. He left some short pieces. Manuel must
    know his surname.
    5) Who made the very first recording on Bach's 2 violins concerto? (with a string quartet)

    4. Joan Manen? I'm not even sure if he was spanish. I have the idea that he wrote a Spanish Concerto, or similar. But we also know Lalo composed a Spanish Symphony, and Collet a Concierto Flamenco (Perhaps they didn't really know they were french themselves).

    Iy seems there's need a little help:
    1) He left some very fine recordings.One is a great version of Dvorak's v.c.
    2) He is known (more or less) by his artistic name.
    3) He was a scott but of polish family, and had a polish surname
    4) He was also Manuel
    5) Two old violinists, one very famous, the other very long lived.

    I thought about Suk too, but could not convince myself he was sufficiently obscure enough. So... if that happens to be right, full marks to Opus.

    I'm enjoying these quizzes, even if I'm (for the most part) hopeless at them. Maybe I should read some more Henry Roth (or Boris Schwartz) books.

    If you're hopeless, then I guess I shouldn't even be taking a stab at the Q's. I could use some book recommendations, though (books for the layman, that is).

    I like anything that enriches knowledge, and I like the violin, so many thanks to oisfetz.

    Did the violinist in 1 leave any recordings? Perhaps one of Nel Cor piu non mi sento?

    Was he Vasa Prihoda? (Provided he was Czech, of course).

    YES Manuel!. I refer to Vasa Prihoda, great technitian and good interpreter. He
    recorded his own version of Zigeunerweissen, on double strings on the middle
    slow part. Sounds great.
    2) He was Oskar
    3) First,Neveu; second,Oistrakh; third...
    5) 1915
