JOSEPH SZIGETI - VIOLINIST

Autographed 5 x 7 action photograph of the legendary violinist playing a televised recital on the BBC. The camera can be seen to the right in the image. Mounted.

Szigeti began to develop arthritis after 1950, but despite his handicap, he played to packed houses, his musicality shone through the difficulties. His long relationship with the BBC began in 1936 with a Proms concert which led to televised solo recital engagements during the 1950s.

Perhaps the most unusual signed photographs we have seen of Szigeti.
