Violin – Michael Rabin

Rabin was an utterly tragic figure who played the violin with ease. So many great or would-have-been-great musicians seem to die young - Neveu, Hassid, Kogan, Lipatti. The musical world had been deprived of a lot over the years.

I know there are a number of people out there who think Rabin was among the greatest, if not the greatest. Unfortunately, we will never know because of his untimely death.

Rabin was one of the greatest violinists, close to Heifetz' superlative playing. I think of him in the same bracket as Kogan and Yulian Sitkovetsky, because there are certain similarities in the playing of these three.
There's dramatic tension created by a performer struggling to surmount a difficult passage--but there's never a sense of anything being difficult for Rabin.
