Arnold Steinhardt Interview
Listen to the Story
It’s hard to believe that the Guarneri Quartet, who “has no superior on the world’s stages” (New York Times), is retiring at the end of the 2008-2009 concert season after 45 years! Their final concert in Columbus is Saturday, November 29 at 8 PM at the Southern Theater.
It’s an all Beethoven program, the quartets opus 127 and 132. Arnold Steinhardt is staying overnight to attend a desert reception in his honor on Sunday November 30th at 12.30, “Violin Dreams”. For tickets and information on both of these events, call Chamber Music Columbus, 614.267-2267 or e-mail email@example.com.
Meanwhile, here’s a chat with Arnold Steinhardt, recorded on October 30th and interviewed by Christopher Purdy. Enjoy.
