New York Times

One of my favorite music quotes: “The violin is a fiendish device that sometimes seems to have been specifically invented to torture all those who study it and all who find themselves within hearing range. Although many learn to manipulate it well enough to please themselves and occasionally others, it is rare to find a violinist who has mastered the instrument's problems to such an extent that all its difficulties are hidden.” Donal Henahan, 1983
