American Violinist Guila Bustabo Was Born On This Day in 1916 [ON-THIS-DAY]

Celebrated American violinist Guila Bustabo was born on this day in 1916

Celebrated American violinist Guila Bustabo was born on this day in 1916.

A student of Leon Sametini and Louis Persinger, she is remembered as one of the finest concert violinists of the 20th Century - having performed extensively during the 1940s, 50’s and 60’s with many of the world's top-rank conductors and orchestras.

Jean Sibelius famously quoted Ms Bustabo's 1937 performance of his violin concerto as "just as I envisioned it when I composed it.”

Sadly, bipolar disorder forced her retirement from the concert stage in the early 1970's - before passing away in 2002, aged 86.
