Question: (The 19th Century) Can you think of any music performers from today, or from recent times, whose performance technique — virtuosic like Paganini’s and Liszt’s – includes or included magnificent showmanship? Discuss ways in which these similarity virtuosic performers are like the early masters. [You might think about the definition of “virtuosic” or “virtuoso” before responding the this question. The question is not seeking merely an exposition of the current popular artists of today … but rather to draw links or comparisons to the great virtuosic performers of the past, specifically of the 19th century.]
