Szymon Goldberg had a long and multi-faceted career as violinist, conductor, teacher… a life touching every decade of the 1900s. He was distinguished as a concertizing soloist for many years, as well as being a concertmaster for the Berlin Philharmonic under Furtwangler, whilst concurrently playing in string trios and quartets. He was an active conductor throughout his musical life.
Gary Lemco, host of The Music Treasury, will take a closer look at Goldberg’s life, presenting recordings of Goldberg on the violin, featuring composition by Bach, Handel, Dvorak, and Beethoven (culminating with Beethoven’s Violin Concerto). The show can be heard on 5 November 2017, between 19:00 and 21:00, PDT. In addition to being a radio show, it is also presented as streaming broadcast: kzsulive.stanford.edu
