MINT CONDITION

Autographed and inscribed blue heavy stock 3.5” x 6.5” card to autograph collector Sigurd Berg, February 11, 1953.  We offer with a high pixel 5.5” x 6” photographic copy of a photograph of Rabin, Artur Rodzinski and Jascha Heifetz, an image contemporary to the autographed card and suitable for framing.

Rabin (1936-1972) is a story of greatness and tragedy.  A musical genius who showed promise in his infancy, he studied first with his New York Philharmonic violinist Father.  When his gifts became to great for his Father’s tutelage, he was brought to Ivan Galamian and Zino Francescatti who taught him at Juilliard and Meadowmount.  His professional debut was in Cuba with the Havana Philharmonic under Artur Rodzinski in 1947.  He made his Carnegie Hall debut in 1950 and his first National tour was during the 1951-1952 season.  In 1951 he made his New York Philharmonic debut under the direction of Dimitri Mitropoulos.  Rabin made his first records for Capital Records in 1950 and then in 1951, 1952 and 1953.  His final recording was in 1959.  Rabin continued to concertize throughout his short life.

If you have been with us long enough, you will remember we handled a portion of his personal collection of scores, his record collection, photographs and other ephemera on behalf of his family some years ago.
