Extractions: Main Page See live article Alphabetical index 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 - Antonio Vivaldi Arcangelo Corelli and Pietro Locatelli all played the violin. In the early 19th century, Niccolo Paganini did much to expand the instrument's technique. Other notable 19th century violinists include Joseph Joachim (who was friends with Johannes Brahms Leopold Auer (who taught many famous violinists of following generations), Pablo de Sarasate and Eugene Ysaye Among significant later players are: Popular music violinist, including fiddlers

Extractions: LATE CONCERTOS DAZZLE In his Dance Suite (1923), Béla Bartók demonstrated his mastery of orchestral writing using original ideas; in his miraculous Music for Stings Percussion and Celeste (1937) he proved his ability to handle more disparate forces effectively. No wonder virtuosi of the day (violinist Zoltan Székely for Violin Concerto No.2, violist William Primrose for Viola Concerto, Op. Posthumous.) begged this Hungarian master to compose solo works for their use. In this RCA Red Seal recording from 1990, Pinchas Zukerman takes on the formidable challenge of performing both works for the unforgiving microphones over a five-day period. The result is a CD that belongs in any serious listeners collection. Its clear from both works that Zukerman and Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra conductor, Leonard Slatkin, have similar views as to how these vividly daunting works should be brought to life.

Extractions: Music Index Metro Metroactive Central Archives Pinchas Power Celebrated violinist Pinchas Zukerman kick-starts the San Jose Symphony season By Philip Collins T HE SAN JOSE SYMPHONY got the new season off to a roaring start on Saturday night with a gala concert that blended star power and stylistic variety to captivating effect. Celebrated violinist and conductor Pinchas Zukerman performed in both capacities for the "Winter" movement from Vivaldi's The Four Seasons and delivered a stunning account as soloist in Bruch's Concerto no. 1 for Violin and Orchestra. Respighi's The Birds and Bernstein's Symphonic Dances from West Side Story added sugar and spice respectively to the bill. Music Director Leonid Grin was regrettably absent due to a family emergency, but Assistant Conductor Yair Samet proved able and engaging at the podium in the maestro's stead. In Bruch's emotionally turbulent concerto, Samet maintained close rapport between the orchestra and Zukerman, holding tight to his soloist's elastic phrase shaping without getting wrapped up in it. Samet's clear communication of the score elicited clean ensemble work from his players, making the utmost of the contrasts between the violin's rhapsodizing and the orchestra's primly stated episodes. The ensemble work was unwieldy at times, especially in the first movement, where a lack of coordination in the cellos' pizzicato accompaniments was particularly distracting. Lapses in momentum made the finale a mixed bag; the alternations between Zukerman's driving solo work and the corresponding orchestral episodes rendered the latter feeble in comparison.

Born in St. Petersburg, Russia, Mr. Kalinovsky first appeared as a competition winner, performing with the St. Petersburg Conservatory Symphony Orchestra at the age of thirteen. Shortly after moving to the United States, other competition victories followed, including the Grand Prize at the Bellini International Competition in Italy. As a winner of these competitions, he has been engaged at various venues ranging from recitals and solo appearances with orchestras to educational and outreach programs. In the United States, Mr. Kalinovsky has been featured in recitals in New York, Washington DC, Baltimore, Minneapolis, Nashville and Boston, as well as performing as a soloist with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, Yonkers Symphony Orchestra, and Rondo Chamber Orchestra, among others. He has also been heard frequently on radio, including New Yorks WQXR classical music station. In recent years, Mr. Kalinovsky has been enjoying numerous recital and concerto engagements in South America. Following a highly successful debut with the Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional in Bolivia, which was nationally televised, the critics noted him as a young violinist who will reach the top of a brilliant artistic career. He has also been repeatedly invited to Israel, where he performed together with Pinchas Zukerman, both in chamber music and concerto performances with the Sinfonietta Orchestra.

Extractions: Star-Bulletin Violinist Pinchas Zukerman has a firm idea of how the job of conducting an orchestra should be done. Rule one: "It's important to remember not to get in the way. "Once you start the car it doesn't need you. It just needs you to direct." He's not being a prima donna. As well as performing as a soloist, Zukerman has been a conductor for 30 years and is currently music director of the National Arts Centre Orchestra of Canada. He will be in soloist mode at the Honolulu Symphony's gala opener tonight. He has appeared in Hawaii before, but has never worked with the symphony's music director Sam Wong. Wong is looking forward to the encounter and respects Zukerman's philosophy. "That's absolutely true. I'm of the same way," said Wong. "I'm not a micromanager." Zukerman will play Beethoven's Violin Concerto in D Major, which he praised for its elegance. "It's a very simple piece, but what it does is amazing. It shows Beethoven's genius," Zukerman said.
