Woodstock was many things but one thing is clear - it is heralded in the popular consciousness as the cultural touchstone of a generation.

      Ara Malikian: Violin is my whole life

      I imagine people call me “the crazy violinist” because the image of a normal violinist is this very serious, rigid and arrogant person, and I am not like that. I am just the way I am. Also, when I play, I like to be inspired and it shows in my stage presence. I love the nickname and I think it is nice to be crazy, although I do not think I actually am. If people want to think I am a crazy violinist, I am happy to act like it, says violinist Ara Malikian in an interview to Europost.
