The Violin Player is the first techno/pop album by classical and pop musician Vanessa-Mae, released in 1995. The album was produced by Mike Batt, and engineered by Gareth Cousins. Batt and Cousins programmed the synthesisers and beats for the album. The Violin Player features a varied blend of music – covers of some classical (J.S. Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor), remakes of old favourites (including American composer Mason Williams' "Classical Gas") and originals (seven tracks composed by British musician and songwriter Mike Batt), and one original by Vanessa-Mae herself, co-written with Ian Wherry ("Red Hot"). The album has sold over 1,2 million copies worldwide, and is still regarded by many as Vanessa-Mae's best work. It has been reissued as a multi-channel hybrid SACD by EMI Music Hong Kong.
