Product Details


All proceeds benefit the National Foundation to Promote String Teaching and Playing. The second in ASTA's series of three CDs features string players in the solo spotlight. Virtuosity is often thought of as fast fingers, but it is much more than that. The legendary cellist Emanuel Feuermann described a virtuoso as "one who possesses the ability that is necessary for the interpretation of music" and has "respect for a piece of art and the ability to fit one's personality to the art work." Any musician who reaches this noteworthy level of accomplishment can be proud of his or her achievement. In the words of author Robert Caro, "A master of a profession cannot but know that he is a master, cannot but feel joy and pride in exercising that mastery." "I think that you will agree that the mastery exhibited in these performances exemplifies the many facets of virtuosity." -Jeffrey Solow
