Label: Solo Musica

The advantages of old master violins against modern violins - or vice versa - is one of the most discussed issues in the world of string instruments. A year can barely pass without a new scientific study, in which they claim to be able to definitely prove which one is better. For the most part, these supposed sensations reveal only one dimensional thinking, which can hardly ever be appropriate when defining a complex phenomenon such as the finite qualities of a string instrument.

Philip Draganov plays Bach and Ysaÿe
