The instrument played by America’s most influential violin teacher is on the auction block this month. Expect the hammer to fall just short of $2million.
Dorothy DeLay taught at Juilliard from 1948 to her death in 2002. Her pupils included Itzhak Perlman, Midori, Nigel Kennedy, Sarah Chang, Gil Shaham and Kyung-Wha Chung.
With Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz and the mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato, Miss DeLay put Kansas on the musical map.
