I think he is even faster than Chuan yun  Li. Watch his right wrist, almost no movement at all!! In this video he did it in 44 seconds (from 4:01 to 4:45)! However, I think the faster it goes the less it resemblance bumble bee.  Grew up being stung by tons of mosquitoes, I thought the flight of bumble bee actually sounds more like mosquitoes especially when it's played at the "normal" speed:))

He skips a lot of stuff though. That performance would not be approved by the Guinness World Record panel of judges. Also, he uses his electric violin because it picks up the signal with much less effort than an acoustical violin. Uses just the wrists to achieve the speed.
Don't mean to be so critical but JFI. 🙂 He can be quite entertaining non the less.

Yes, skipped out on a lot! David Garrett has the record I believe.

I found this on Wiki.... I think David's record has been beaten.  You never know.. Wiki has been wrong before.
