Extractions: BUY NOW AmazonUK AmazonUS Many of Elmans finest qualities exist alongside the worst in Schuberts Ave Maria and s felicitously and sympathetically skittish here with staccato accents which tend to distract from his violinist partners more erratic and idiosyncratic phrasal ploys. Chopins Nocturne gives us Elmans practised finger slides but at such a slow and ponderous tempo that the work bloats itself like a whale beached on the shore. Elman still has some pungent things to say in Schumanns Prophet Bird but for all his fervour here, as elsewhere, its inevitable that one chooses instead to remember the violinistic titan whose incendiary tone inspired two generations of violinists and enchanted countless admirers around the world.

Extractions: A violinist is an instrumentalist who plays the violin . The terms fiddler or fiddle player are also used. In classical music the "fiddle" terms are usually somewhat informal or jokey: they are more standard expressions in folk music. In between there are nuances of meaning and usage which are difficult to formalize. Composer-violinists were common in the Baroque era: In the early 19th century, Niccoló Paganini did much to expand the instrument's technique. Other notable 19th century violinists include Pierre Rode Joseph Joachim (who was friends with Johannes Brahms Leopold Auer (who taught many famous violinists of following generations), Pablo de Sarasate Henri Vieuxtemps Eugene Ysaye and Henryk Wieniawski Among significant later players are: edit Tracy Bonham (alternative rock) Polly Bradfield (jazz) Vassar Clements (Bluegrass, Country, Jazz)

Extractions: The greatest physicist of the 20th Century. His ideas revolutionized our entire understanding of the universe. Einstein changed the course of science as much as did Copernicus, Newton and Darwin. His fundamental contribution was the theory of relativity. This has many facets, but for most people the theory means that the faster you travel (approaching the speed of light), the more time slows down. He also was responsible for the formulation E=MC , which describes the relationship between mass and energy. A little mass can give off a lot of energy. Among other things, this formula accounts for the tremendous explosive force given off by an atomic bomb. After his theories gained prominence, Einstein was appointed professor of theoretical physics at the University of Zurich and at the University of Prague. In 1913, he was appointed director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Physical Institute in Berlin. In 1921, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for his research of the photoelectric effect. Einstein, who was Jewish, fled anti-Semitic persecution in Germany just as Hitler came to power. On his arrival to the United States in 1933, Einstein had a job waiting for him. He was granted a lifetime professorship by the Institute of Advanced Study at Princeton. He was naturalized in 1940 as a U.S. citizen his third citizenship.

Extractions: Competition Jascha Heifetz was a child prodigy and still a young boy when he made his triumphant musical debut on the violin. In the audience, seated side by side, were Mischa Elman, who had already established his own reputation as a violinist, and Artur Rubinstein, the pianist. As the recital continued, and as Jascha played the violin like an angel, Mischa Elman writhed in increasing discomfort. Finally he leaned over to Rubinstein and said, "Isn't it terribly hot here?" Calmly, Rubinstein replied, "Not for pianists ..." -A Final Thought ... "The notes I handle no better than many pianists. But the pauses between the notesah, that is where the art resides." Artur Schnabel (18821951), German-born U.S. pianist. Quoted in: Chicago Daily News (11 June 1958)
