Robert Vijay Gupta has been playing violin in the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra for the past four years and, while he talks of it as ‘a dream come true’ , is looking to upgrade to solo.

Oh, and to play a 1716 Stradivarius, the one Nathan Milstein used to play. And to include new music from east and west on his debut album, some of it written by himself.

He’s not alone in those ambitions,  but he seems to be going about them in an original way.
