Musical Heritage: William Primrose
Monday, March 15, 7:30 pm
Live Webinar

Violist Paul Neubauer and violinist Aaron Boyd host an evening celebrating William Primrose (1904-1982), the Scottish violist and teacher who is universally revered as the greatest violist who ever lived. Primrose’s solo and chamber music recordings attest unequivocally that he was, in fact, the only violist who could “keep up” with Heifetz, and his playing truly has to be heard to be believed.

The Musical Heritage series explores the musical legacies of towering figures in classical music through exceptional conversations with the artist’s students and colleagues along with film clips, historical photos and relevant documents.

Musical Heritage: Pablo Casals
Monday, April 5, 2021, 7:30 pm

The great Catalan cellist Pablo Casals (1876-1973) stands alone as arguably the most influential and universally revered instrumentalist of all time. The first cellist in history to recognize Bach’s Six Solo Suites as great music, and the first to record them, is only one of the musical milestones of this extraordinary man, who not only dominated cello playing for more than half a century, but also served as an uncompromising and indisputable voice of social conscience. In this exploration of Casals the musician and the man, cellist and CMS Co-Artistic Director David Finckel leads a panel of distinguished musicians -- Dmitri Atapine, Arnold Steinhardt, Jaime Laredo, and Timothy Eddy -- who, either through direct contact or inherited influence, have been changed by the art of Casals forever.

* The Musical Heritage series explores towering figures in classical music and brings them to life through exceptional conversations with the artist’s students and colleagues, along with film clips, historical photos, and relevant documents. This hugely popular, free webinar series streams live on Monday evenings, and is then available on-demand on the CMS website starting Friday of the week following its premiere. (The most recent episode, on the Guarneri Quartet, attracted over 1,800 registrants for the live stream, and sign-ups continue for the recorded program available on-demand.)
