Extractions: Nathan Milstein, besides being a great violinist, was a great musician. He had the technique, the intonation, the phrasing, the tone and the high musical ideal which he was able to transfer from the mind to the hand. I've heard most of these tracks in the past. I recently heard the Beethoven concerto, included here, and I must say that it is one of the most beautiful performances of this work, the only others rivaling it
Extractions: Mono recording by Roy Chan My first encounter with Nathan Milstein happened a few years ago when I purchased his 1973 recording of Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto. I was captivated by the playing of the soloist right from the start; glowingly sweet and full of mundane feelings yet always sublime and never over-romantised. There was also a smoothness and cosy warmth which I never found (and indeed has yet to find) in others. I was overwhelmed. Since then I have always kept a keen lookout for any recording of his. So when EMI reissued this mid-50s monoaural recording of Beethoven 's and Brahms' Violin Concertos on compact disc, I snapped it up without thinking; and I was not disappointed. Beethoven wrote his only violin concerto in 1806 which was duly premiered in the same year by Franz Clement, principal violinist of the Theatre an der Wein, who, back then, was a popular figure with the audience. It is primarily not a virtuosic piece, though immensely technically demanding; instead it is one that is noble, lyrical and serene with none of the heroic struggle as in his Third or Fifth Symphonies. In spite of being only fairly received by critics and audience initially, it slowly established itself in the concert repertoire and is now regarded as a touchstone of every violinist's art.

It was painful to do because I would have liked to have kept it in the family, but I wasn't happy with it. I don't like Strads for the simple reason that they always have a "Strad" sound. I prefer to create my own sound. I play a French cello now, a Lété from 1839, a docile instrument that sounds well wherever I play. Teachers:

Remarks: Julian Altman was a café violinist who is said to have stolen Hubermann this instrument from his dressing room at Carnegie Hall while Hubermann was performing on his Guarneri del Gesú. After his death in a correctional facility in Connecticut his widow gave in court contradictory versions of the theft. Altman, who played on the Gibson for nearly 50 years, was in prision not due to the theft but due to sexual abuse of his wife's grandchild.
Extractions: $29.90 thereafter More often than not, broadcasts and live performances of artists who made many studio recordings represent them as possessing qualities and characteristics distinctly different from those of an editor's air-brushed and reassembled studio portrait. But in Milstein's case, the live performances seem equally flattering, if not more so. At the very least, they reveal the injustice of dismissing him as simply a violinist's violinist. He had in his lyre a string for every occasion, even if he reserved the use of that lyre for music-and occasions- of his choosing. But though he may not have been a man for quite all seasons, all seasons flattered him. CD-1168(2) THE ART OF NATHAN MILSTEIN: PREVIOUSLY UNISSUED PUBLIC PERFORMANCES
Extractions: Nathan Milstein Odessa December 31 December 21 London ) was a Russian Jewish born violinist who took United States citizenship in after spending much of his life there. As a child, he was forced by his mother to take violin lessons to keep him out of mischief. When he was 11, Leopold Auer invited him to become one of his students at the St. Petersburg Conservatory . He was the last of Auer's students to actively perform. When Auer went to Norway in 1917, Milstein went back to Odessa. In 1921, he went to Kiev and met Vladimir Horowitz , and they performed together and struck up a fast friendship. In 1925, they went on a concert tour of Western Europe together. Milstein made his American debut in 1929 with Stokowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra . He eventually settled in New York, although he repeatedly toured throughout Europe. He is considered one of the 20th century 's leading violinists and was especially well known for his interpretations of Bach sonatas and Romantic works.

Extractions: email@example.com Musical Performance Recording Quality Overall Enjoyment Nathan Milstein was part of that generation of great Russian musicians born around the turn of the century and who left the fledgling Soviet Union in the 1920s. In fact, Milstein left Russia on the same ship as pianist Vladimir Horowitz. Milstein was possessed of a fabulous technique and great musicianship. For some reason, he is less well-known than the majority of the virtuosi of the 20th century, but this relative neglect is certainly not for reason of any lack of genius. There are just some musicians the public will take to their hearts, and others equally or even more talented whom they will not. In 1986 Milstein at the age of 82 and playing better than ever was in Stockholm to give two recitals which would be recorded for television. On the day of the first recital, he awoke to pain and stiffness in the first finger of his left hand. As there was no way to cancel the concert, he spent the day reworking the fingering of his entire recital an incredible undertaking, only made possible because throughout his lengthy career he had made a habit of reworking fingerings (sometimes during actual performances) in order to stave off that perpetual enemy of the good: routine.
Extractions: The practice of letting the soloist improvise their own Cadenza during a Concerto had almost died out by the nineteenth century, since composers disliked the way performers frequently used the oppurtunity to showcase their own virtuosic talent rather than working out a cadenza which would suit the music. These four Cadenzas for Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms and Paganini concerti, however, have been carefully worked out and performed by the modern violinist Nathan Milstein. They are extremely challenging but avoid 'empty virtuosity' - they have real musical value, as one would expect from one of the finest Violinsts of the Twentieth Century. They can be used for performance or as a study aid to the art of Cadenza improvisation. All four Concertos have been recorded by Milstein.
