Extractions: Story by Willa Reinhard / Sept. 24, 2001 Carnegie Hall ( Michael Wolverton Isaac Stern, the world-renowned violinist who led a successful campaign to save New Yorks Carnegie Hall in the 1960s, died on Saturday of heart failure at a Manhattan hospital. He was 81. Admired as one of the great instrumentalists of the 20th century, Stern devoted his life to music, and once said of it, "You need it as you need bread." "Simply for reasons of sentiment and piety, it would be wanton to destroy it," Stern said at the time. "Think of Tchaikovsky conducting there at the opening! Think of Paderewski and Chaliapin! But there are practical reasons, too, for not destroying it. The young people of this country are demanding more and more music and producing more and more first-rate musicians. How dare we take away from them the music, and the audiences of the future, one of the greatest music rooms of the world?" Recent News Stories New plan would save four Providence mills.

In 1979, violinist Isaac Stern was invited to China on a cultural visit, a monthlong trip to Beijing and Shanghai. He performed, with a pianist who accompanied him, and observed the Chinese students playing both their own traditional instruments, and western ones. The film dedicates only a few minutes to travelogue-style views of the countryside. Some remarkable scenes are shown inside the Peking Opera Company, where performers dancing with swords and spears do some incredible things as impressive as anything in a martial-arts fiction film.

Extractions: One of the world's greatest living violinists, Isaac Stern, has written his autobiography. It's whimsically titled My First 79 Years . The memoir, published by Knopf, describes not only his distinguished music career, but also his many activities outside the concert hall. Born in Ukraine, Isaac Stern was brought to the United States when he was a baby and grew up in San Francisco, California. It was with that West Coast city's orchestra that Mr. Stern made his performance debut at the age of 15. In a recent interview, he describes why he decided to write his autobiography. "One of the reasons I wrote this book is not to talk about how to play the violin - not the edge of it - but why. To perform, any machine can play better than a human. But only a human being can look at somebody and say, `I love you.'" The late conductor George Szell once joked with Mr. Stern, suggesting that if he spent less time doing "other things" and practicing, he could become the greatest violinist in the world. What Maestro Szell was referring to was his public service work, such as performing in Jerusalem during the 1991 Scud missile attack on the city or teaching music to Chinese students in 1971. But Isaac Stern's best-known act of generosity may be his tireless effort to save New York's historic Carnegie Hall from being torn down in the 1960s. Now, he modestly says it was just something that any good citizen would do. "That's the way I was brought up. Carnegie was there and was there to be forever."
