You may like this fellow, he has played all over the world, he samples his own playing and then layers it and plays back on top of it. He actually busks every week in Chester in England  and can be watched for free, even though he has been on tv many times and is very wealthy he likes to play his music on the street to get as he puts it the real public’s reaction. This is a video of him on later with jools Holland on British tv some years ago, there are many videos of him on you tube busking as well as interviews.

by the way he made the violin himself

stringy -Woohoo Jump Emoticons  Thank you! 

This is FABULOUS!  I love when people show EVERYTHING is possible on a violin!

I will be checking out more of his performances & found a better quality video for you (bump up to 720).

 

...you're hitting the sounds I've grown up with! 

5 strings - like mine!

Thanks for that, much better quality. He sounds even better when he plays outside on the street live, I often watch him in Chester.

😆 Sorry, think the bar for 'Great Violinists' has fallen too low - maybe "A Laugh A Day" (Breakroom)?

I am not a fan of emoting.

It comes in many forms, some genuine and some utterly fake.

Emoting can be a substitute for musical expression. Clearly you have to make music first and emote (if you must) second.

Even in Vengerov's case I feel his emoting isn't really all that necessary for the sound he produces, although he is genuine.

Plenty of top performers don't, and don't need to, emote, and emoting is usually for the audience's benefit. Even a pianist can emote for the audience where it has zero musical effect. You can pretend to vibrato on a piano key. It does almost nothing, but the audience sees it and goes with it.  

For me, if I hold back expressions I am faking a bit.  I'm not in the same ballpark as a guy like Vengerov. It's like trying real hard not to laugh or cry. But I do understand what you are saying. I had plenty of colleagues that felt the same way as you do.

  

There was no point in raising this topic from the dead, but I was musing on Jacqueline du Pré and I realised, the way to understand my view of emoting is to ask, is it a cause or a result? In other words, in a musician such as du Pré (or Santana, who was mentioned earlier) emoting is a result of their musicality. But some people are taught that emoting can cause musicality. No!

I don't think these two are all that famous, but they're definitely great. Seriously impressive performance.

I played that song yesterday during my practice - but not on purpose.

I was chasing a bug on my fingerboard. It sounded almost the same though.

They are true artists and their timing together is perfection!

Them are some fiddle players  and the pianist is no slouch either.

Great find, thank you
