VC HIDDEN GEMS | Jewish Polish-Mexican Violin Virtuoso Henryk Szeryng

997
Henryk Szeryng S

This week The Violin Channel explores the recordings of Jewish Polish-Mexican violin virtuoso, Henryk Szeryng.

A protégé of Carl Flesch and Jacques Thibaud, he fled Poland under persecution during the 2nd World War – eventually naturalising as a Mexican citizen.

Absent from the concert stage for more than a decade, in 1954 at the coercion of piano virtuoso Artur Rubinstein, Maestro Szeryng recommenced his concert career – going on to produce an extensive recording legacy of solo and chamber music literature.

He sadly died suddenly from a cerebral hemorrhage in 1988 – aged just 69.
