ON THIS DAY | French Violinist Ginette Neveu Was Born 102 Years Ago

The virtuoso violinist had a short but musically rich life, after out-placing Oistrakh at the inaugural Wieniawski Competition

 

French virtuoso violinist Ginette Neveu was born on this day in 1919.

A student of Jules Boucherit, George Enescu, and Carl Flesch, Neveu achieved worldwide fame at age 15 when she beat the then 27-year-old David Oistrakh and claimed first prize at the Wieniawski International Violin Competition.

She died tragically in 1949, aged just 30, when her Air France flight crashed into a mountain in the Azores, killing all 48 passengers and destroying Neveu's Stradivarius and Guadagnini instruments.
