Violinist Toscha Seidel Died On This Day in 1962

He holds a place in history as Albert Einstein's violin teacher

 

Ukrainian violinist Toscha Seidel died on this day in 1962 – aged 62.

A protégé of Leopold Auer in Saint Petersburg, Mr. Seidel migrated to the United States in the 1930s. Early in his career in the U.S., he had a show on CBS radio called "The Toscha Seidel Program." He was featured as a soloist in several Hollywood productions, including the movies Intermezzo, Melody for Three, and even The Wizard of Oz (1939).

Seidel is remembered as one of the finest violin virtuosi of the 20th Century — noted for his lush, romantic tone and free rubato.
