Violinists at a German orchestra are suing for a pay raise on the grounds that they play many more notes per concert than their colleagues do. The 16 violinists at the Beethoven Orchestra in Bonn argue that they work more than their fellow musicians who play instruments like the flute, oboe and trombone, and also say a collective bargaining agreement that gives bonuses to soloists is unjust.

April 7, 2014 | By Joe Banno, This post has been corrected. See note below.
Violin aficionados don't flock to Pinchas Zukerman's recitals to be blown away by flashy bowing, heart-on-the-sleeve drama or radical deconstructions of thrice-familiar classics. They go to experience some of the most pristine technique and honest musicianship to be heard anywhere. In his recital of sonatas by Beethoven, Schubert and Brahms with pianist Yefim Bronfman at Disney Hall on Friday, it was gratifying to hear that Zukerman's playing hasn't lost its characteristic sound after more than 40 years of a career divided among the competing demands of conducting, teaching and playing as a string soloist and chamber musician.

David Garrett, whose fashion model looks have led him to be dubbed the David Beckham of the violin, will be lent a Stradivarius to play at a Valentine Day's concert tonight at the Barbican Centre in London. It will replace his own priceless Strad, which he accidentally smashed after a concert there Dec. 27. "People said it was as if I'd trodden on a banana skin," the German-born violinist, 26, told London's Evening Standard on Wednesday. "I fell down a flight of steps and onto the case.

Christine Wu appeared in one of the year's most viral videos thus far: Billy Ray Cyrus' hip-hop remix of "Achy Breaky Heart. " She played the electric violin - while doing a backbend. Wu, who lives in Santa Monica, is breaking new ground in the performing arts by combining dance, yoga and complicated choreography with the violin. Wu recently talked about how she trains, how movement fuels her creativity and how she's carved out her niche career. You do yoga and ballet as well as working out at the Venice Beach gym. How does your exercise regimen help with the physicality of playing the violin?

Its origins are shrouded in mystery. It has been associated as much with the devil as with the sound of angels. Though it can convey whole worlds, it is as portable as a briefcase. It is arguably the most written about, obsessed over, fetishized instrument ever made by man. It is, of course, the violin. And we are fascinated by it. By its high soprano voice, its otherworldly harmonics, its rich darker tones.

She's a woman with one name but multiple lives. Midori's fame as a violinist reveals only part of her story. In addition to a steady schedule of concert engagements, including a stint playing Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra last week, she is heavily involved with the nonprofit organization she founded to enhance music education in New York City public schools.

According to the Bonn violinists' theory ("Pay for Play: Why Stop at the Fiddle Section?" by Randy Lewis, April 8), as there are 16 first violinists in a typical symphony orchestra, perhaps their salary should be divided by 16, as they are, for the most part, all playing the same notes in unison; whereas typically the solo clarinetist is playing solo and in every case the timpanist is doing so.

Bach and other musicians-cum-comics, conservatory-trained violinist Aleksey Igudesman and pianist Hyung-ki Joo like to say that they don't make fun of classical music but rather that they have fun with classical music.

SAN FRANCISCO - Kim Knoble's past tracks an arc of promise, mental illness and descent into what her parents call "living hell. " But Knoble is not homeless, in prison or dead - outcomes common with stories like hers. Instead, on Wednesday, the woman with a head of wild red curls plans to walk into the St. Francis Yacht Club, tell her tale of recovery and lift the instrument she did not touch for a decade to play Massenet's "Meditation From Thais. " Now 31, Knoble was mastering Mozart violin concertos by the time she hit middle school.

They laughed when Leon Botstein became president of Bard College in 1975, at the very idea that a 28-year-old could enliven a venerable New York liberal arts college. They laughed in 1990 when Botstein started the Bard Music Festival, which had the appearance of a vanity operation for his own seemingly dubious ambitions as a conductor. They laughed once more when he became music director of the American Symphony Orchestra 20 years ago, especially after some rocky early performances and scathing reviews.

A good place for the Los Angeles Philharmonic to try out new talent, the Hollywood Bowl can be curiously hospitable to odd couples. Concerts are one-night stands, so there is less to lose than at downtown subscription concerts, where programs are repeated three or four times. But the complicated Bowl schedule can mean an almost haphazard mix and match between soloist and conductor on occasion. It requires speed dating, given that the typical program has a single rehearsal the morning of the concert.

SANTA BARBARA - Midori is a formal and famously unflappable violinist. I don't know whether she is fearless, but she may be that too. She came to our attention at age 14 in 1986 as a soloist for Leonard Bernstein in his "Serenade. " She broke two strings during the performance, but nothing fazed her. Bernstein bowed to her afterward in awe. She's as committed a musician as you will find. She never lets an audience down. But there can be a downside to her dedication and her striving for perfection.

He was a protégé of Paderewski, the legendary Polish pianist, who said that someday this boy would take his place. But this boy became a parody. Poor Liberace. He may have cried, as he liked to quip, all the way to the bank, but he is poor Liberace if his legacy must be reduced to the pathetic, bitchy, superficial, desperate-for-attention queen portrayed by Michael Douglas in "Behind the Candelabra. " Steven Soderbergh's trashy biopic about the pianist and his relationship with his young chauffeur had its premiere Sunday on HBO.

Among the exceptional accomplishments of Mieczyslaw Horszowski, the Polish pianist who died in Philadelphia in 1993 one month before his 101st birthday, was marrying at 89, performing into his late 90s and teaching until the last week of his life. His students include such probing pianists as Murray Perahia, Richard Goode and Peter Serkin. In those final recitals, a revelatory Horszowski summoned, with fingers that preserved an incomparable historical memory, long-dead voices from another era. The Horszowski Trio, which made its Los Angeles debut Friday night at the gilded Doheny Mansion at Mount St. Mary's College to close the Da Camera Society season, has thus chosen surprising footsteps to follow.
