Death of a noted concertmaster and festival founder

December 7, 2016 by norman lebrecht


We are sad to share news of the death of Jerrold Rubenstein, a New Yorker who became concertmaster at La Monnaie orchestra in Brussels and later of the Belgian national orchestra.

A formidable chamber musician, widely recorded, Jerrold taught for 30 years at the Antwerp Conservatoire, and at Izmir and Dublin. He founded the Festival Mozart at Waterloo.


Our sympathies to his wife, the pianist Dalia Ouziel, and their family.
