Vintage Violins : About

This show is no longer airing. You can access archives online.

There’s a certain generation of violinists who helped set the standard for the instrument but you never hear them on the radio. And it’s time to correct that.

As part of our ViolinFest, WQXR is presenting Vintage Violins, every Monday night in September.  You’ll hear giants like Jascha Heifetz, David Oistrakh, Leonid Kogan, Nathan Milstein and many more.  We’ll focus on their chamber works, so you can hear their sound up close and at its most intimate.
