ON THIS DAY | Violinist Josef Gingold was Born in 1909

A student of Vladimir Graffman and Eugène Ysaÿe, Mr. Gingold is remembered as one of the pre-eminent violin pedagogues of the 20th Century

 

Born in 1909 in Brest-Litovsk, Poland to a family of six children, Gingold learned to play the violin at an early age.

He was concertmaster and soloist with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra until 1947, until conductor George Szell offered him the concertmaster position with the Cleveland Orchestra. He attributed Szell as the greatest influence on him as a musician and teacher.

He remained with the Cleveland Orchestra until 1960 when he joined the faculty at Indiana University and was named Distinguished Professor. His Orchestral Excerpts, which contains 300 works in the symphonic repertoire, was published by the International Music Company of New York.

In 1982, the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis was founded under the artistic direction of Gingold, which was later succeeded by his student Jaime Laredo.

Professor Gingold was on the juries of all major international competitions including the Queen Elisabeth, Wieniawski, Paganini, Sibelius, Nielson, Naumberg, Leventritt, and Tchaikovsky International Competitions.

His famed students included Joshua Bell, Miriam Fried, Leonidas Kavakos, Jaime Laredo, Joseph Silverstein, Martin Beaver, Andres Cardnes, and Philippe Graffin.
