The current in vogue abbreviation G.O.A.T stands for the Greatest of All Time. It usually refers to sports legends, and more recently, Jeopardy champions. But what about music. We will delve into the past and present G.O.A.T violin compositions, the violinists that performed those pieces, and even the violins on which they played. If you were asked, who are the best violinists of all time, I would bet we would name many of the same greats. But there may be some amazing surprises regarding the violin compositions, and those who performed those popular and recognizable pieces.
