Leonidas Kavakos was a boy wonder, winning both the Sibelius Competition and the Paganini Competition while still in his teens. He went on to become one of the world's leading classical musicians, and this weekend he is playing Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto, a crowd-pleaser known for its virtuosity-requiring solo part. And, in case you have any doubt as to Kavakos' virtuosity, here's a little clip to whet your appetite. It's okay, I guess...if you're into, like, genius.
