Japanese pedagogue Shinichi Suzuki died on this day in 1998 – aged 99.

Many of today’s top soloists and orchestral musicians began their musical education with his teachings – including virtuosi Sarah Chang, Hilary Hahn, Ray Chen, Leila Josefowicz, Stefan Jackiw, Nicola Benedetti, Julia Fischer, Anne Akiko Meyers and Arabella Steinbacher.
