My favorite is Hillary Hahn, and she plays the Mendelssohn violin concerto in E minor, op 64 brilliantly. I love this video
Julia Fischer is also a genius playing Tchaikovsky violin concerto in D major, op 35 here
And Itzhak Perlman playing Brahms concert violin
Do you have others... similar genres, or other areas that you find are in this league of playing?
Thank you, I love to not only hear but see the techniques and styles of these master violinists.

Rachel Barton Pine is probably my favorite violinist, but mostly for her penchant for recording lesser-known repertoire. Hilary Hahn is probably my second-favorite.
Another violinist I watch closely for technique and style is not a soloist: Lorenza Borrani, concertmaster of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe as well as the un-conducted orchestra Spira Mirabilis. I haven't seen anyone better at leading a section, and that's relevant to me because I'm principal violist in a community orchestra and always looking to get better in that role.
Finally, I'd like to mention violist Richard O'Neill. He has incredible stage presence, and the video of him I've linked offers an excellent example of using leg movement to give the arms a bit of extra freedom.
