The Violin Alone

A Chance Encounter

Clip | 2m 51s | Video has closed captioning.

What are the odds that a composer would meet the violinist in his mind’s ear, and that a violinist would meet the composer who writes the music from his dreams? It happened with Tchaikovsky and Leopold Auer, with Brahms and Joseph Joachim, with Shostakovich and Mitoslav Rostropovich. It has happened before, but it is very rare. Now it has happened for Eric Funk and Vilmos Oláh.
