The Violin Channel recently caught up with superstar violinist Sarah Chang – for a fun game of VC Desert Island Downloads.
We sat her down to pick her brain on which 5 CD recordings she would take with her to a deserted island – and how the tracks have helped shape her as a musician.
'The Holy Grail of recordings ... awe inspiring ... the sheer amount of repertoire he managed to put down on tape is mind boggling ... this was gifted to me several Christmases ago from a dear friend ... the collection to end all collections.'
