  • Certainly well-earned prize for the remarkable violinist Maria Milstein. Congrutalations.
    As her sister Nathalie Milstein already explained on this site in 2015: the Milstein family, living in the Netherlands, is not related to the violinist Nathan Milstein, but they are descendants from grandfather Yakov Milstein, a famous Russian musicologist.
    Milstein is a surname that often can be found in Russia.
