Extractions: FORWARD CORRESPONDENT Isaac Stern, who died of heart failure September 22 at the age of 81, was remembered this week as one of the greatest violinists of the 20th century, but also, like the Jew he was, as one who could not help arguing with the world to make it a better place. Whether organizing, preserving, rainmaking, mentoring, buttonholing or just lending his prestige and presence in solidarity, Stern was seen as an embodiment of the rabbinic principle that one righteous person can make all the difference. "Being a Jew means caring about more than things within your own little sphere," said Stern's daughter, Shira Stern, who carried on the family tradition of making a difference when she became one of the first female rabbis in the United States. "And in that respect, my father was an extraordinary Jew. He was passionate for causes of social justice, for education and for preservation of what is best in society." In a small but typical example, Stern, himself a Russian immigrant, jumped at the chance to be one of the first artists to tour the Soviet Union when Nikita Khrushchev began to open up the country after the death of Stalin in 1956. As anticipated, Stern's violin playing raised the roof in his performances. But he raised a bit more than the roof by also publicly engaging Khrushchev in a debate about artistic freedom, instantly putting the issue on the front burner internationally.

Extractions: When I was in college my violin professor spoke of Isaac Stern. He consider what Stern did was the best. He liked his style and technique, and he liked his sound and he liked his musicality. Time passed..............and I became a violin teacher. I bought the usual CD's of the many present day artists and also the greats of the past and enjoyed them. By this time Isaac Stern was not giving as many violin solo performances but was involved in other aspects of the violin music world. I was never fortunate enough to see and hear him in person, and after listening to these CD's, I have recommended his CD's as a very good listening experince for any student studying one of the solos he has recorded. He plays what I would term some of the most "honest" musical translations. I have great respect for Isaac Stern. I am reading his book Isaac Stern - My First 79 Years . He became a fine concert artist through a lot of hard work and he has continued to serve the music world. I think back to my college years and Professor Andrew Lisko speaking about Isaac Stern, and I think I have many years later rediscovered the magic in Stern's playing that my violin professor loved. I dedicate this page to Professor Andrew Lisko of Capital University. Isaac Stern was born in Kreminiecz, Ukraine July 21, 1920. Isaac came to the United States when he was 10 months old becuase his parents fled the 1921 Russian Revolution. He grew up in San Francisco and studied violin with Naoum Blinder. When he was 14 he played the Brahms Violin Concerto with the San Francisco Symphony. His Carnegie Hall debut was in 1944 with the New York Philharmonic, he was 22 years old.

His greatest triumph as cultural ambassador was perhaps his journey in 1979 to China, captured on an Academy Award winning video, From Mao to Mozart Journey to Jerusalem I saac Stern was less than a year old when his parents, fleeing the Russian Revolution in 1921, emigrated to San Francisco. Thanks to the support of a wealthy patroness, he was able to study at the San Francisco Conservatory, then privately with Louis Persinger. He said he owed most to Naoum Blinder, a violinist of the Russian school and leader then of the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra, with whom Stern studied from 1932 to 1937. His recital debut came in San Francisco in 1935. The following year he played the Bach double concerto with Blinder and the San Francisco Symphony under Monteux, and the Tchaikovsky concerto with the Los Angeles Philharmonic under Klemperer. In 1961 Stern forged a famed trio with the cellist Leonard Rose and the pianist Eugene Istomin, and recorded all the works for piano trio by Beethoven, Schubert and Brahms. When Rose died in 1984 he often teamed up with younger colleagues such as the pianist Emanuel Ax, the cellist Yo Yo Ma, and the flautist Jean-Pierre Rampal to play the chamber-music classics. His regular pianist in solo recitals was Alexander Zakin. In the film
