Program notes

In the pantheon of violinists of the 20th century Nathan Milstein is the enchanter.

A sound as soft as velvet, as pure as spring water, an infallible bow, an acute sense of musical respiration… He did not want to be a violinist! "I didn't feel drawn to the violin, but it was my mother's wish. So I played it." Nathan Milstein's mother, who simply wanted to calm down a boisterous son, had good intuition.
