I consider the Dover Quartet to be the millennial generation's best string quartet, at least so far.

Here's the Dover Quartet playing the rarely-performed original version of Barber's Adagio for Strings.

@AndrewH 

Yes, I saw that video once before. I had seen a part of the score and realised that, since it was in Bb minor, the whole melody could be played on the A string and assumed that was the point, but was surprised in this video to see it played instead on the D string in 4th position.(from memory)

I would definitely play it on the D string too. An open A would simply sound wrong in this piece, and 4th finger would be awkward.

I just realized I posted the wrong video in Post 102 above....guess I copied the wrong YouTube URL. Here is the Violin Concerto in e minor by Felix Mendelssohn - Miclen LaiPang, violin - Preston Hawes, conductor

Note: Miclen LaiPang was only 13 years old in this video.

For showmanship and variety, my pick is Roby Lakatos:

Classical, jazz, Roma, lots more.

There was thread on vcom, that got pulled, about sex selling music.

I wish I'd found this in time to post it there: -

LOL - Billy looks in vain for a "Shakes head in disbelief" smiley.  Must say though, I like the look of the electric cello.  And yes, it's the instrument I'm talking about.  drummer

 Hey @Gordon Shumway - was just browsing back through this thread for things I've missed - out of interest (since it seems no longer available due to

"Video unavailable

What WAS it ?  Just curious, thanks !

Hi, Bill. It seems to have been Heifetz playing the Chaconne from Bach's Partita No.2 on French TV in 1970.

Here's a different link. You'd better download it while you can!
