What need to add that his conception of Beethoven is neither as lovely as Kreisler's nor as fascinating as Ysaye's?
In the performance of this music Mr. Ysaye was altogether in his glory.
Unlike so many great men, Ysaye was honoured in his own country, and appreciated and adored by his own people.
But what impressed me most forcibly about her and about Ysaye was their perfect control.
Wilhelmj drew from his instrument the noblest sounds I ever heard; not Joachim, not Ysaye excelled him in cantabile.
Ysaye's eminence as a violinist has been gained by hard work.
Three violinists abide clear in my recollection: Wieniawski, Wilhelmj, and Ysaye.
Ysaye is an artist who has transcended his own medium—he has become a poet of sound.
So I telegraphed Ysaye at Namur, to ask if he could loan me a violin for the concert.
Emma Shafter Howard made it possible for many musical people to meet the celebrated violinist, Ysaye, a number of years ago.
