    The only one I've seen before is the Essential Yo Yo Ma. Although, I'm new to this and own just a couple of CDs, I don't think I'll go with any of those. Some of the performers listed are famous (Yo Yo Ma and Johsua Bell, for example), but these are, in general, more "modern" (if I may use the term) renditons. For violin, you may want to check some Itzhak Perlman or Yehudi Menuhin CDs. But that's just my opinion.

    Bah. Don't bother buying any of those. They probably aren't worth their money at all (although 'The art of violin' DVD is a good buy)

    There are plenty of videos on youtube that you can see. For example this one:

    Magnificent performance by Daniel Barenboim.

    Dear, could you please tell us what you have? I guess it takes less time (perhaps no time)...:tongue:

    Well the only electronic sound reproducer i have is a clock radio, i have never owned a dvd player or any other type of musical entertainment, so
    what i need is a decent sound player, if i went to a shop i would not know
    what to look for.

    Lisa, not a lot, and it gets less all the time. :smile:

    Wolram all those DVDs are "best ofs", except for the violin sonatas. If you ar going to do claasical you should get some solid works too, maybe the Mozart Jupiter symphony or any of Beethoven's nine, etc. It's just like not starting your library with a bunch of books of quotations.
