Death of an influential concertmaster, 93

We have reports of the death in Turin of Alfonso Mosesti, concertmaster of three Rai orchestras from 1954 to 1999 and a crucible of the inexpressible nature of Italian string tone.

A renowned soloist, passionate about little-known Italian composers, he never bothered much with an international career.
