Last years of 19th and first decade of the 20th centuries, there were active several violinists already famous or who became famous later, who made recordings in those years. Some, like a Hungarian, a Spaniard and a Belgian, mature or old men at the end of their careers; others like an Austrian, a Czech, a Pole and an American woman, young and beginning theirs. Can you name those seven violinists?

Clearly there will be a number of potential answer to this question, here are my submissions for a few:|
The Belgian- Mathieu Crickboom was a Belgian violinist born in Verviers (Hodimont) and ended his days in Bruxelles. Crickboom was the principal disciple of Eugène Ysaÿe, who dedicated to him his "Sonata for Violin Alone No. 5".
The Czech - František Alois Drdla (Franz Drdla) (28 November 1868 - 3 September 1944) was a prominent Czech concert violinist and composer of light music.
And how about the German-Austrian Carl Venth (February 16, 1860–January 29, 1938) who was a violinist, conductor, music educator, and scholar. He was a leading classical music figure in Texas in the first half of the twentieth century and was one of the early music directors of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra.
I'd like to see what other posters think.
