Polish violin virtuoso Josef Hassid was born on this day in 1923 – 93 years ago.

A prodigious student of Carl Flesch, he was destined for a career of the highest caliber before crumbling tragically to the effects of mental illness.

Violinist Fritz Kreisler famously remarked: “A fiddler such as Heifetz is born every 100 years; one like Hassid every 200 years”.
