Registration Required, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar after registration. Please note the time will be 6:30pm CST and 7:30pm EST.
Founding Emerson String Quartet member Philip Setzer, who was a student of Shumsky, hosts an evening devoted to the legendary violinist Oscar Shumsky [masked]). Fellow Shumsky students Ida Kavafian and Eugene Drucker, Shumsky’s recording producer Eric Wen, with special guest Eric Shumsky, the violinist’s viola-playing son, join for an in-depth exploration of Shumsky’s life. They shed light on the violin playing of this great master, who is too-often unsung and undiscovered, despite the frequent comparisons to only the most legendary of violinists, like Heifetz and Kreisler.
Organized by the Chamber Music Society – Musical Heritage series.
