Bazzini is know only for his famous dance, a classic test of virtuosity for
violinists, but he had some charming chamber works. Try if you can his
6 SQ. With Cherubini's, the best italian SQ of the 19th.cen.IMO.
Larry Adler was a great virtuoso. He played popular pieces but also good
arrangements of classics. Listen if you find it his Enescu's famous romanian
raphsody. Beautiful.
