Extractions: by Edith Eisler There has been a surge of interest in the great violinists of the past recently, as if audiences have tired of the undifferentiated, mass-producedsounding performances often heard today and begun yearning for the "good old days" when players could be clearly identified by their tone and personality. The resulting flood of reissues on compact disc offers a fascinating look at the style and characteristics of the greatest violinists of the last century. In this selective report on the concerto repertoire, I hope to reclaim some less-known players and stimulate further explorations. The earliest violinist recorded here is Carl Flesch (18731944), who is remembered mainly as a great teacher but whose recording of the Beethoven and Brahms Concertos (

Extractions: On April 28, 1947, Poland saw the beginning of Operation Wisla, the forced resettlement of about 150,000 ethnic Ukrainians to the Polish hinterland. Polish President Aleksander Kwasniewski recently apologized to Ukraine for the actions of the former Polish communist regime. The Ukrainians were deported from the so-called Zakerzonia, that is, the traditionally Ukrainian lands of Kholmshchyna, Pidliashshia, Nadsiania and Lemkivshchyna, which happened to be on the Polish side of the border. Early in the morning on April 26th, 1986, an explosion occurred at the No. 4 reactor of Ukraine's Chernobyl nuclear power plant, located not far from Kyiv. Around 30 people were killed and about 200 more were treated for acute radiation poisoning. Large areas of land in Belarus, Russia and Ukraine were contaminated to various degrees. The accident occurred during a test of the turbines, which involved the turning off of the automatic shutdown system. An unexpected surge in power led to a steam explosion that lifted the top off the reactor and released fission products into the atmosphere, followed by another blast that spewed out burning graphite and fuel. The main casualties were among fire fighters, who quickly extinguished the blaze, then the cleanup crews and finally people living in the immediate vicinity. On the same day, in 2001, Prime Minister Viktor Yushchenko was dismissed by parliament in a no-confidence vote engineered by Communist hardliners and Ukrainian big business. Yushchenko had served as chairman of the National Bank and had then been made premier under then President Leonid Kuchma in December 1999.
FORWARD : News did in the footsteps of such legendary figures as mischa elman, Jascha Heifetz, Stern was one of the first major violinists to champion such modern http://www.forward.com/issues/2001/01.09.28/news9.html
Extractions: FORWARD CORRESPONDENT Isaac Stern, who died of heart failure September 22 at the age of 81, was remembered this week as one of the greatest violinists of the 20th century, but also, like the Jew he was, as one who could not help arguing with the world to make it a better place. Whether organizing, preserving, rainmaking, mentoring, buttonholing or just lending his prestige and presence in solidarity, Stern was seen as an embodiment of the rabbinic principle that one righteous person can make all the difference. "Being a Jew means caring about more than things within your own little sphere," said Stern's daughter, Shira Stern, who carried on the family tradition of making a difference when she became one of the first female rabbis in the United States. "And in that respect, my father was an extraordinary Jew. He was passionate for causes of social justice, for education and for preservation of what is best in society." In a small but typical example, Stern, himself a Russian immigrant, jumped at the chance to be one of the first artists to tour the Soviet Union when Nikita Khrushchev began to open up the country after the death of Stalin in 1956. As anticipated, Stern's violin playing raised the roof in his performances. But he raised a bit more than the roof by also publicly engaging Khrushchev in a debate about artistic freedom, instantly putting the issue on the front burner internationally.
Extractions: by Ng Yeuk Fan Several years ago, I was at my usual haunt - a CD shop specialising in classical and audiophile stuff, when the sales assistant-friend I had become so familiar with handed me a disc and asked me for my opinion about it. I looked at the brown ugly covers with much skepticism. It was a recording of Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto played by Leonid Kogan on the Arlechinno label. I had already heard countless numbers of this concerto and was in possession of several rather good recordings. [I flipped on the S$300 headphones... an additional service provided by the now defunct HI-FI Corner, famed for their service and no-limit listen-before-you-buy policy at no additional costs - and about the S$300 headphones, they provided at least 12 for their listening stations in a shop the size of my bed room!!! Major shops should follow suite if they care to earn the business of audiophiles and ...] ....to my amazement - "? gasp ] - who on earth is this Leonid Kogan?" Leonid Borisovitch Kogan (1924-1982) was born in Dnepropetrosk, a small Russian town. At age ten, having learnt the basics of violin from his photographer-father who was also an amateur violonist, the family moved to Moscow so that young Kogan could receive tutoring from the famed Leopold Auer.
William Primrose Biography Caruso and Emmy Destinn and by some of the leading violinists of the dayEugeneYsaÿe, Jan Kubelik, mischa elman, Fritz Kreisler, and Josef Szigeti. http://music.lib.byu.edu/piva/WPbio.html
Extractions: As one of the world's premiere violists, William Primrose left a legacy well worth preserving. His lengthy career included membership in the NBC Symphony, associations with an array of quartets and chamber ensembles, a remarkable solo career, numerous teaching appointments, and important pedagogical publications. In his engaging memoirs, Walk on the North Side In 1919, when William was about fifteen, the family moved to London where he had received a scholarship to attend the Guildhall School of Music and William began to study violin under Max Mossel. Although he received a gold medal, the Guildhall's highest honor, at his 1924 graduation, William later admitted that he hadn't been what the Guildhall considered an ideal student: I was supposed to take secondary piano, theory, and counterpoint, but I skipped them all. The reason here . . . was my ear. If I had been given something in the way of advanced harmony and counterpoint, I might have been interested. But everything started from the fons et origo . . . (from the beginning). . . . I was so little inspired by violin instruction at the Guildhall School that I kept in the cloakroom a volume of concertos edited by Joachim, which I would retrieve before my lesson and read in class. And that would be my lesson for the day.

Leopold Auer VIOLIN PLAYING As I Teach It Leopold Auer (18451930) belonged to that select company of violin mischa elman,Jascha Heifetz and Efrem Zimbalist (Sr.) were among Auers students. http://www.midi-classics.com/p1495.htm
Extractions: Leopold Auer (18451930) belonged to that select company of violin virtuosos who not only established the level of artistic excellence for the nineteenth century, but also trained many of the violinists who surpassed that level in the twentieth. Mischa Elman, Jascha Heifetz and Efrem Zimbalist (Sr.) were among Auers students. Himself a pupil of the great Joseph Joachim, Auer will always be regarded as one of the most important violin pedagogues in history. Receiving poor direction at an early age is disastrous for a violinist. As Auer says, There is no instrument whose absolute mastery at a later period presupposes such meticulous care and exactitude in the initial stages of study as does the violin. With this book every beginning violin student will have the benefit of the finest guidance.

Alexander Markov - Reviews Mr. Markov scoops and slides with an emotional intensity that has all but vanishedfrom contemporary violin playing. Somewhere mischa elman is smiling. http://www.alexandermarkov.com/reviews.htm
Extractions: "The most exciting violin recital this listener has heard in quite some time. Mr. Markov's playing is marked by a Romantic effusion that comes so naturally it never seems vulgar or affected. He seems to have stepped directly out the past: although he is a young man - he plays like an old 78 recording come to life, without the pop and sizzle of shellac. Mr. Markov scoops and slides with an emotional intensity that has all but vanished from contemporary violin playing. Somewhere Mischa Elman is smiling."

Extractions: During this incredible exclusive association Solti made some of the legendary recordings in the history of the gramophone. What is sometimes forgotten is that when Solti first signed to Decca in 1947 it was as a pianist and his first recordings were as partner with violinist Georg Kulenkampff (all of their recordings are included here with the exception of one Mozart Sonata). Solti was a musician of broad sympathies who, during his long career, continued to explore repertory that was new to him. All of the recordings included here are receiving their first international CD release and the recordings of Kodaly and Richard Strauss are released with the co-operation of Deutsche Grammophon.
Extractions: The woman who became the most respected female violinist of her time was born in Fort Calgary, Alberta in 1890. She was the only child of Charlie Parlow, a Hudson's Bay Company employee, and his wife, Minnie Parlow. Her mother took Kathleen to live in San Francisco when Kathleen was four, and they did not return to live in the nation of her birth until 1940. Mother and daughter nevertheless retained strong ties to Canada; in fact, as Kathleen's international career developed, she was often billed as "the Canadian violinist". Minnie Parlow herself played the violin, so while in California she gave her daughter a half-size violin. Kathleen received lessons at first from a cousin, Conrad Coward, who was a professional violin teacher; it was he who first called her a prodigy. As her immense talent declared itself, she was sent to the violin professor, Henry Holmes. Parlow's rapid ascension was partly due to being home-schooled, where she could devote more time to her instrument than she could have through normal schooling. Parlow herself believed that nature was responsible for the ease with which she mastered even the most difficult violin technique: "I have a very good hand for a fiddle. It has a big stretch. There really is such a thing as a physical aptitude for the violin, and I had it" (Hambleton, 1978).
Extractions: Suzuki Association of the Americas Home About Us Contact Us ... Chat Shinichi Suzuki, the man who developed the Suzuki Method, died on January 26, 1998, at his home in Matsumoto, Japan. Though he lived to be 99 years old, Dr. Suzuki always seemed young. He was full of energy, and was cheerful and loving to everyone he met. Shinichi Suzuki was born on October 17, 1898, in Nagoya, Japan. He was one of twelve children and his father owned a violin factory. Shinichi and his brothers and sisters played near the factory and saw instruments being made, but the children never realized what beautiful sounds could come from a violin. When he was seventeen, Shinichi heard a recording of Schubert's Ave Maria , played by a famous violinist named Mischa Elman. He was amazed that a violin could make such a beautiful tone because he had thought it was just a toy! After this, Shinichi brought a violin home from the factory and taught himself to play. He would listen to a recording and try to imitate what he heard. A few years later he took violin lessons from a teacher in Tokyo. Then, when he was 22 years old, he went to Germany and studied with a famous teacher named Karl Klingler. Shinichi also met his wife Waltraud in Germany. They married and moved back to Japan, where he began to teach violin and play string quartet concerts with his brothers. Shinichi had always loved children and became very interested in teaching them. He thought that children could learn music just as they learned to speak - starting when they were very young and hearing music all around them. He believed that all children have the talent to learn if they are taught well by loving parents and teachers. These were very unusual ideas at that time. If children did play an instrument, they started learning when they were ten or eleven. Also, most people thought that musical talent was a special thing that only a few people had.
