83Charlie Siem

Its hard nowadays to watch pieces created by the masters to be interpreted with skill and passion. Charlie Siem lets his violin sing, and his work is easy to appreciate because of his YouTube channel. His work is inspiring and accessible; listening to him play is like breathing fresh air. His interpretations are a careful combination of tradition and modern. In a nutshell, Charlie Siem is a breathtaking violinist, and even in a video, you can hear the raw passion and the life in the violin and the piece

The best of the all, and he is young. A name and career to follow.
Passionate, fills you with emotions when he plays.
Such a gifted artist! I love his work!

Just an absolutely amazing violinist! By far my favorite - and I've watched A LOT of them!

She plays paganini pieces

88Rachel Barton Pine

One of the top six today I am sure, what a beautiful sound she makes just to start with, and he musicianship is second to none, superhuman techniques. She is also an amazing musicologist, charity, show host and an amazing Mom...!

She is one of the top say 6 violinist in the World today in my book! She is one of the top 3 sounds in the World today!

Great player and very passionate. See his Paganini #24 on YouTube and you can see he is one of the greats (too much tempo stretching in my opinion though...)
