Oscar Shumsky Webinar Presented by CMS

Edited: January 23, 2021, 2:51 PM · You’re invited to join a webinar presented by the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center on the great violinist, Oscar Shumsky, Monday, January 25, 2021, at 7:30 PM EST.

Founding Emerson String Quartet member Philip Setzer, who was a student of Shumsky, hosts an evening devoted to the legendary violinist Oscar Shumsky (1917-2000). Fellow Shumsky students Ida Kavafian and Eugene Drucker, Shumsky's recording producer Eric Wen, with special guest Eric Shumsky, the violinist's viola-playing son, join for an in-depth exploration of Shumsky's life. They shed light on the violin playing of this great master, who is too-often unsung and undiscovered, despite the frequent comparisons to only the most legendary of violinists, like Heifetz and Kreisler.

Edited: January 23, 2021, 7:26 PM · Yes indeed. Also I forgot to add earlier that the webinar is free admission - you just have to preregister in order to get the Zoom ID from CMS. So far as of early this afternoon, 500 people have signed up!
