New YouTube Upload

While the title of this post is indeed true, the newest YouTube upload is not actually one of my performances. It is a live performance of my father performing the Korngold Violin Concerto with conductor James DePreist and the Philadelphia Orchestra in December of 1994. While I have numerous recordings of my father's performances with the orchestra (which occurred every other year for the duration of his 42 year tenure), this performance is undoubtedly one of my favorites. My father used to love watching old, black and white films with lush, hollywood soundtracks to match the old-school romantic love scenes. Korngold was actually a film composer and there are so many moments in his violin concerto which remind me of watching these movies with my Dad.

Alongside the recording is a slideshow of photos throughout my father's career, including pictures with artists such as Maurizio Pollini, Claudio Abbado, Riccardo Muti, Wolfgang Sawallisch, Jascha Heifetz, Gregor Piatigorsky, Mstislav Rostropovich, Eugene Ormandy, Beverly Sills, Zubin Mehta, Sergio Peresson, Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos, Charles Dutoit, and the members of the dePasquale String Quartet. Enjoy!

Until next time,
