The three virtuosos Ysaÿe, Vieuxtemps and Wieniawski raised the level of violin playing, which seemed to have no limits, and left a great tradition behind them. Both Vieuxtemps, a prominent exponent of the Franco-Belgian violin school, and Wieniawski, the inventor of the "Russian bow hold", were teachers of Eugene Ysaÿe, nicknamed in his time as "the Tsar" of the violin.
Ysaÿe's refined technique, along with his sophisticated renditions, his ravishingly beautiful vibrato and sound, was unlike any violinist of his generation.
Although the three composers' fame was in the shadow of their talent as performers, the works written by these legends are among the most important of today's artists.
