September 7, 2022 at 03:05 PM · As from ~ Carrier of the Heifetz-Milstein Violin Playing/ Mentoring Legacy {#3}

Really!!! And could the Music Reviewer of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, perform Ludwig van Beethoven's ethereal plus Violin Concerto with more 'spunk' in the opening Mvt -a holy sublime slow movement + 3rd which few artists inhabit with exceptions of both of my fabled Violin Mentor's, Heifetz & Nathan Milstein, and which rare artist - musician, Anne-Sophie Mutter, has also entered with a Beethoven profundity sadly 'foreign' to many still stuck in the virtuoso violinist-public-displays ranks?!

This portion of The Review needs to be quoted within its full context before one actually rings an Editor of said newspaper! Perhaps Editor,, Laurie Niles, will request the full

newspaper Review, for those of us truly interested to see and again, in its full context?!

A Word: As my Icon Master Violinist Mentor, Nathan Milstein, once told me in his Chester Square Teach home in London ~

"Never believe what you read in the newspapers, Elisabeth!!" 'Me Thinks' Mr. Milstein's wise words hold firm & most true at this time re Pittsburg P-G circa 2022, long past 30 Years plus ago ...

Respectfully submitted for all & Editor LN consideration,

.......... Elisabeth Matesky ..........
