Going to ask a question that might sound dumb but as usual thats never stopped me before !!
Anne Sophie Mutter and Janine Jansen are both very reputable players yet there music leaves me cold it just doesnt sound right somehow. Hilary Hahn and Rachel Barton Pine have the exact opposite effect, their sound just draws me in and sounds so emotional.
What causes this, is it the player, the music, the instrument or my mood at that point in time ?
