Einstein enjoyed playing the violin all his life.

An amateur for sure, but it was one of his major sources of relaxation. Once he had the opportunity visit the acclaimed cellist Gregor Piatigorsky and the opportunity to demonstrate his skill. After he finished, Einstein asked, how did I play?

In true wordsmith fashion Gregor replied:

You played relatively well.

2. Einstein as a violinist was known to be bad at counting (while playing music.)

He also said that the two most wonderful things to do were sailing and playing string quartets.
