This week VC explores the recordings of unassuming American violin virtuoso David Nadien

A student of Adolfo Betti, Ivan Galamian and Adoph Busch, Mr Nadien made his professional solo debut at age 14, before receiving the coveted ‘Leventritt Award’ – and going on to serve as Concertmaster of the New York Philharmonic from 1966 to 1970

Widely respected as one of the most technically perfect violinists of all time, Mr Nadien is believed to have been at one stage engaged by both David Oistrakh and Yehudi Menuhin for technical advice

Now 87 years old, Mr Nadien is retired from a distinguished solo, studio recording, orchestral and teaching career
