The mid-90s pair will appear at a Paris concert next week.


  • Ricardo says:

    In Norwegian, “ivrig” (pronnounced like Gytlis’ first name) means “keen” or “eager”.

  • sfk says:

    such a remarkable duo, wishing them continued good health and thanking them for giving us such wonderful music

  • John Dalkas says:

    Moving video in Pressler’s loving, thoughtful style as always. Thanks for posting.

    Correction though: Pressler isn’t on the list of performers at this concert in Gitlis’ honor:

    Streamed live and later on the Philharmonie site.

  • Jaime Herrera says:

    Pressler does not have to worry about his sound (just hit the right keys) – Gitlis does. It’s terribly difficult to get a good sound from the fiddle after one turns 80. However, Gitlis always plays with his inimitable style so I wish them well.
