New video: An exclusive interview with Ivry Gitlis on his 94th birthday

It is also the 60th anniversary of his owning the 1713 ‘Sancy’ Stradivari, once the property of Jan Kubelik. Ivry talks, in those inimitably warm tones, about his relationship with his instrument, his friendships with Jascha Heiftez, Isaac Stern and more.

With Ivry it’s all about falling in love.

He is talking to Jason Price of Tarisio.

  • It is worth noting that Gitlis calls Stern his friend and doesn’t say anything negative about him. Unlike Aaron Rosand, he doesn’t feel the need to settle (real or imaginary) scores.
