The World Violinist Links 

Welcome to my Violinist Links page! I'm glad to know quite a few people visited here since December, '98. I'm very happy if you enjoy my site, but I originally intended it for my own convenience and for my friends who share the love for violin music with me.

I'm only a great fan of violin music. Having a career that has nothing to do with music in Japan, I have some difficulties in collecting new information and keeping each piece updated. Now that this page is open to anyone who loves violin, I would like to ask you to join me in making it better by posting your favorite violinists and their websites. Please remember I would like to keep this list for professional, classical solo violinists including concert masters and quartet players who also perform as soloists.

And to those website owners, please forgive me for putting links to your sites without your permission. I thank you for your generosity in advance. If there is any problem, please let me know at the following e-mail address.

Thanks and best regards,

A. Kose ( (April 11, 1999)
