No. 304, January/February 2022
Our cover story this issue is a conversation with French violinist Edgar Moreau, who in January released a new album Transmission, including the music of Ernest Bloch, Erich Korngold, Max Bruch, and Maurice Ravel. Performed with the Lucerne Symphony under Michael Sanderling, Transmission is meant to represent the “handing down of cultural and spiritual values” and explores music related to Moreau’s Jewish heritage. You’ll also find Strings’ ever-uplifting annual focus on adult amateur players in this issue, and a feature about the Infamous Stringdusters’ surprising, and topical, new album.
Also in this issue:
- An ode to the enduring influence of cellist Lynn Harrell
- An exploration of the waning power of “golden-era” players
- Team Tucker’s journey toward the completion of a tribute violin
- Restoration expert Iris Carr on the art of invisibility
- A brush-up on double-stops in a tricky interval
