Autographed 3 x 5 action photograph of the legendary violinist, to Ruth Uhlfelder, the wife of his South American tour manager, Gerry Uhlfelder, 1954.

 

Szigeti began to develop arthritis after 1950, but despite this handicap, he played to packed houses and his musicality cut through his difficulties.  He made several South American tours, this year, 1954 was to be his last time performing there.  While on this tour, 12 year old pianist Martha Argerich was presented to him and he auditioned her for Uhlfelder.

 

After 1960, Szigeti moved to Switzerland for the rest of his days.
