Mischa Elman

This week The Violin Channel explores the recordings of Russian-born American violin virtuoso Mischa Elman.

A celebrated child prodigy of famed pedagogue Leopold Auer, Maestro Elman is remembered for his passionate, Romantic style and warm, silvery tone.

He died unexpectedly in 1967, aged 76, just a few hours after completing a rehearsal, but thankfully bequeathed the world a treasured recording legacy – spanning more than 5 decades.
