On January 19, 1972, the great American born violinist, Michael Rabin passed away at the age of 35. I thought it would be nice today to start a discussion on this great violinist who sadly left us way too soon. Feel free to share your favorite Michael Rabin recordings, thoughts, and concert memories.
Here are two Paganini Caprice recordings of Michael Rabin. It is especially refreshing now to hear No. 16 and No. 24 played by Mr. Rabin, without any added gimmicks in contrast to some recent performances of these works. He let his playing do the talking - like a true artist!
