Extractions: Comments: Greg Jeffreys said: Point 1. Everyone says that their favourite is 'the best'. (Is intellect for 'the search' - or is it to clothe a feeling with articulate justification?) Point 2. I was very depressed to hear an extended playing of the Chaconne by a 17 year debut artist (Helen Hann...?). Beautiful tone, wonderful playing. But a 'section break' for almost every variation. I think she manages 18 minutes - it was like Klemperer on Prozac. So I share with you my enthusiasm. This is a wonderful recording. As the modern instrument differs so fundamentally with that of Bach's day, he has left a text that has had to be changed: you can't un-invent history. Kevin C.E. Yen said:

Extractions: With this two-part film by Christopher Nupen, Classica commemorates one of the greatest violinists of the 20th century. Nathan Milstein talks about his life and describes his idea of perfection in violin playing. Paying homage to the revered virtuoso is Milstein's younger colleague Pinchas Zukerman. The documentary, also called "Recollections of a quiet musician", complements these conversations with a fascinating array of historical pictures and musical excerpts. Between the two parts of the portrait, Classica is airing an historical concert recording of Nathan Milstein and Georges Pludermacher playing Ludwig van Beethoven's Sonata for violin and piano in A major Op. 47, the "Kreutzer Sonata". Recorded at the Berwald Hall in Stockholm in July 1986, it was one of Milstein's last performances. Shortly thereafter, an injury of the left hand forced him to give up his career. Born in Odessa in 1904, Nathan Milstein was unquestionably one of the supreme violinists of the 20th century and the last representative of the legendary Russian school of violin playing instituted by Leopold Auer in St. Petersburg, from which many famous virtuosos emerged. Milstein's brilliant career spanned seven decades. After leaving the Soviet Union in 1926, he first settled in western Europe and then in the United States, where he became a citizen in 1942. Milstein died in London in December 1992 after suffering a heart attack.
