Works by Bach played on an old master violin, and the Sonata No.3 ‘Ballade’ by Ysa˙e played on a modern violin.

The advantages of old master violins against modern violins - or vice versa - is one of the most discussed issues in the world of string instruments. A year can barely pass without a new scientific study, in which they claim to be able to definitely prove which one is better. For the most part, these supposed sensations reveal only one dimensional thinking, which can hardly ever be appropriate when defining a complex phenomenon such as the finite qualities of a string instrument. Hamburg born violinist and conductor, Philip A. Draganov, has enthralled audiences in Europe, Asia and the USA with his ‘impulsive virtuosity... and exuberant musical power’ (Hamburger Abendblatt). He had his debut as soloist at the age of only twelve with the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra in the Laeiszhalle in Hamburg and has since enjoyed a multifaceted international career.
