While observing Lin’s formidable technique performing a section from Antonio Bazzini’s “The Dance of the Goblins”, Perlman is left in awe. He asks Lin how he plays the “Staccato bit”. He stiffens the arm and hopes for the best, Lin replies.
Perlman then goes into a hilarious story about how violinist Josef Gingold learned how to play staccato by Eugène Ysaÿe, who essentially scared him half to death. (Eugène Ysaÿe was an imposing musician not only for his great technique, but for his great physical height.)
Just watch the video, it’s well worth it.
