ON THIS DAY | Violinist Nathan Milstein Died in 1992

A protégé of Pyotr Stolyarsky, Leopold Auer, and Eugene Ysaye, he is widely regarded as one of the finest violinists of all time


Soviet-born American violin virtuoso Nathan Milstein died on this day in 1992, aged 88.

Praised for his interpretations of J.S. Bach's unaccompanied violin sonatas and romantic repertoire, he was also known for his violin transcriptions. During his time in Europe, Milstein concertized throughout the Soviet Union, frequently collaborating with pianist Vladimir Horowitz.

He also toured in the United States and Canada, making his American debut in 1929 with the Philadelphia Orchestra.

In 1968, he was recognized by France as an officer of the Legion of Honour.

For much of his career, he concertized on the 1716 Goldman Stradivarius.
