Russian violin virtuoso Julian Sitkovetsky was born on this day in 1925 – 91 years ago.
Dying aged just 32 from lung cancer, David Oistrakh once suggested that had he lived, Maestro Sitkovetsky would be remembered as one of the truly great virtuosi of all time – eclipsed both himself and Leonid Kogan.
