What made me think of this subject title was my listening to Sarah Chang, and also reading what so many have to say about her. I especially like to see her play when she was young. What a beautiful, wholesome personality and this just adds to her greatness.

I suppose when it comes to violinists she and Itzhak Perlman are, together, at the very top.

No doubt a majority of people would put Horowitz at the top, alone, with respect to modern day pianists. Appears Argerich is his main competition.

Cello: Yo Yo Ma and Han Na Chang. Also two people with outstanding personalities.

Other instrumentalists who are at the very top? Welcome your thoughts. Always searching for talent to enjoy!

Music. One of man's greatest inventions. And...for me, the piano expresses it best.
