The tone must be beautiful, sumptuous, and mellow, with a luminous vibrato and superhuman precision – Pinchas Zukerman is the representative of an aesthetic of violin playing that was especially prominent during the second half of the 20th century. This beauty that melts listeners’ hearts is the result of long struggle with the instrument. Even now, Zukerman still spends hours each day training the basics of violin playing, like holding the bow, finding balance, and playing open strings. Since it’s only by mastering the simplest things that one excels in the most difficult ones.
Performance ends at approximately 8:00 P.M.
