not just another Canadian virtuoso

violinist James Ehnes

"One of the most gifted and sincerely expressive artists to have emerged in recent times" (The Daily Telegraph, London)

I was very impressed when I heard this guy play on the radio. Not just his technique but his sparkling interpretation of every note and phrase is what I find really enjoyable. James Ehnes is one of the most important living violinists and one of the most prolific recording artists in any style of music (six recordings in 2004!). He plays on the "Ex Marsick" Stradivarius of 1715, which a collector purchased just to lend to him.

And he’s Canadian!
