Greatest Violinist of All Time


The Contenders: Page 4XW

61Arabella Steinbacher

My favorite violinist. Plays so gracefully and passionately at the same time, has very good, clean technique, and a beautiful, warm sound. Plus she's amazing as a person. I met her after one of her concerts, she's really humble and sweet. I especially recommend listening to her playing Mozart concertos - in my opinion she has the absolute best interpretations of those.

The best in the world playing at the moment

62L. Subramaniam

Considered amongst the greatest Carnatic (South Indian Classical) violinists ever.

63Nicola Benedetti

Great potential for future top ten list

One of the best from scotland!

64Sayaka Shoji
65Jessie Burns

Jessie Burns is the violin player for the Irish singing group 'Gaelic Storm'. She has a ton of energy when playing on stage and it is obvious that she has so much fun when playing on stage

67Karol Lipinski
69Ida Haendel

Ida Haendel is still an amazing violinist and teacher. She is way advanced in age but can still move one's heart with her playing.

70Ray Chen

Ray Chen's expression and technique is above and beyond. Winning both the Menuhin and QueenElisabeth Competition, I believe Ray Chen is the Greatest Violinist in the World!

71Olen Cezari
72Shahin Khaki
73Sergey Khachatryan

He is devoted violin player

74Gidon Kremer

Can play anything to perfection: from Piazzolla to Bach - from Mozart to Brahms.

75Lee Cremo
76Ikuko Kawai
77Ivry Gitlis

Gitlis is not only a great violinist, but a philosopher as well. His genius is astounding & he has always played with a unique style. He's not a violinist with any gimmicks. He's simply a great artist who has influenced violin playing in two centuries.

78Liviu Prunaru

Romanian Born Concertmaster. Go to YouTube and listen. He is the only one who can rival the great I. Perlman.

79Christian Howes

Probably the greatest living jazz violinist. He combines, jazz, rock, and classical into a really interesting sound. Also a wonderful teacher, and runs many programs relating to jazz and improvisation.
