Violin organizations, societies, and associations.
Classical violinists use the playing styles and repertory of Western classical music. Western classical violin music is generally understood as the formal 'art music' traditions that originated in Europe in the 16th century have continued to present time with music written by composers that range from Corelli and Vivaldi to Philip Glass.
Please submit only sites by and for accomplished "modern" classical violinists, those who are currently active (for example, "Midori") or whose careers date back to the twentieth century (for example, "Jascha Heifetz"). Sites can include biographies, discographies, sound and video clips, analyses of playing style, or discographies. For violinists who are not exclusively classical violinists or don''t otherwise conform to requirenets to be listed in this category, please see if your submission would fit the requirements for another category.
