End of a violin dynastymain
The great Czech violinist Josef Suk has died, aged 81.
He was a great-grandson of Antonin Dvorak and grandon of his son-in-law, also Josef Suk, a virtuoso performer and composer of Asrael.
He recorded all the major concertos for the national label, Supraphon, and had occasional excursions on foreign labels. For me, his most memorable performances were the Janacek sonata and the Alban Berg concerto.
Requiescat in pace.
