Remembering the Great Nathan Milstein – Born on this Day in 1904 [ON-THIS-DAY]
Russian Empire-born American violin virtuoso Nathan Milstein was born on this day in 1904.
A student of Pyotr Stolyarsky, Leopold Auer and Eugene Ysaye, he is remembered as one of the finest violinists of the 20th Century – performing at a highest of levels well into his mid 80s.
A talented arranger and composer, he composed a number of his own concerto cadenzas, and arranged many works for the violin – including his evergreen ‘Paganiniana’ variations.
He died from a heart attack in London – 10 days before his 89th birthday.
