5.0 out of 5 stars Good Violin Compilation May 7, 2010
Verified Purchase
This is among the best small collections of violin music available, as attested by the previous reviewers who are all at or near the "entry level" for this type of music. As a musician with many decades of listening experience, I don't ordinarily pay much attention to such compilations, since they usually just consist of "bleeding chunks"--a movement from this concerto, a movement from that sonata--with no evident thought or guiding intelligence, as if someone had just done a giant iPod shuffle. But as these avid entry level reviewers show, this type of collection can be highly useful to listeners at their level, as a way to get into unfamiliar musical territory and to help to choose artists they want to hear more of. I can also see great value in giving this compilation to violin students, so that they can hear a selection of masters to emulate. Even violin experts may enjoy a chance to hear a wide range of top-level players within a short time span of about 160 minutes (these are two full CDs).

A key merit of this compilation is that some thought has gone into the order and selection of works. One may immediately notice that we get only one short Beethoven and Brahms work each, and no Mozart, but again I think this is preferable to "bleeding chunks." Disc One begins with five immediately appealing concert works with orchestra. True, two of them are isolated concerto movements, but the Wieniawski "Romance" and the Paganini "La Campanella" function better as stand-alone concert pieces than, say, isolated movements from the concertos Beethoven and Brahms. The sure-fire appeal of this opening set should catch the interest of new and inexperienced listeners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding August 16, 2004
By Zosia
I love the violin and this collection is one of my favorites. A great choice for someone like me who doesn't know enough about music and never knows what to buy. It has introduced me to some artists and pieces that I knew nothing about and will help me know what to look for in violin music in the future. This is my favorite but I would also recommend The Cello and Voice CDs in the "Masters of" series. I can't wait for more in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect February 14, 2005
I love classical music but I dont own very much of it, so I thought I would start my collection with Masters of the Bow. What a beautiful selection it was. I just love the sound of a Violin, Joshua Bell is my favorite,I would love to hear more from him. This collection really helps you get to know the masters. Lovely Lovely!
