Brit musician is world`s fastest violinist

Melbourne: A violinist in England has smashed the record for the fastest performance of Flight of the Bumblebee.

Professional musician, Oliver Lewis, 39, completed his fast fiddle rendition of the Rimsky-Korsakov piece live on the long-running BBC children’s program Blue Peter overnight.

His time of one minute 3.356 seconds, witnessed in the studio by a Guinness World Records representative, shaved nearly a second off the previous record, reports The Age.

Learning of his success after the attempt was verified for accuracy, Lewis, from east London said: ‘‘I feel so much relief, thank you very much.’’
