Frank Peter Zimmermann

Frank Peter Zimmermann is a German violinist born on February 27, 1965 (Heifetz was 63 years old.) He began playing at age five and gave his first concert with orchestra by the age of 10. Zimmermann has concertized worldwide since 1983. He has recorded most of the standard repertoire on EMI but also records for Teldec. There are many good videos of him on YouTube and he has appeared with every major orchestra in the world. Here is one of those videos. As far as I can tell, he does not have a page on MySpace, as many other violinists do. His violin is a 1711 Stradivarius.
