From the Archives: Roman Totenberg
In February, 1995, violinist Roman Totenberg performed with the New Hampshire Symphony Orchestra. He joined NHPR ahead of the concerts on our Perspectives program and spoke with host Laura Kiernan.
In addition to being a child prodigy, world renowned performer and teacher, Totenberg's public radio roots run deep…not just via is daughter, NPR’s Nina Totenberg, but also as director of chamber music for WQXR in New York.
In this interview he discusses the Beethoven violin concerti he performed with NHSO, growing up in eastern Europe between the wars; and he has a funny story about when young Nina and her sisters heard a TV announcer introduce Jascha Heifetz as the “world’s greatest violinist.”
On another note, NHPR's Todd Bookman produced a great piece about a Beethoven manuscript recently auctioned off in NH.
