American Virtuoso Michael Rabin Died On This Day in 1972 [ON-THIS-DAY]

American violin virtuoso Michael Rabin died on this day in 1972, 44 years ago – aged just 35.

A celebrated child prodigy, he is remembered as one of the eminent violinists of the 20th Century – praised by legendary pedagogue Ivan Galamian, as having ‘no weaknesses, never’.

He tragically developed a neurological condition in his late 20s, and died at age 35 - from a head injury sustained by a fall.

Thankfully, Michael Rabin will forever be immortalised by his brilliant and treasured recording legacy.
