Extractions: Medal by Gerta Ries Wiener (1982), Isaac Stern, Violin virtuoso. Isaac Stern (1920 - 2001) Virtuoso violinist Isaac Stern was born in Kreminiesz, Russia on July 21, 1920. When just a year old, his family emigrated to the United States and settled in San Francisco. Stern took up the violin at the age of eight, and within three years was a soloist with the San Francisco Symphony. Stern's memorable Carnegie Hall debut was made in 1943. In 1960, thanks largely to his efforts, historic Carnegie Hall (opened May 5, 1891) was saved from demolition ... and he continued to serve as its president for over three decades. Isaac Stern has appeared in concerts throughout the world, playing his 1740 Guarneri, and has gained recognition as an unofficial "United States Musical Ambassador." Antonio Stradivari made about 1,100 violins during his lifetime, in the 17th and early 18th centuries, of which about 550 survive. But the instrument preferred by Stern is one of just 150 violins made by Giuseppe Guarneri del Gesu during the same period. Strads are described as sounding sweet and golden, while Guarneriuses are more dusky or earthy and sensuous.
Extractions: This American Masters production celebrating Isaac Stern is more a profile of the man than the musician. Fans hoping to hear Stern performing will have to settle for the briefest snippets of fiddling: a bar or two from Mendelssohn, a fragment of Rimsky-Korsakov, a taste of Beethoven. Though each of these begins enticingly, they all quickly fade into the background, little more than aural wallpaper behind the comments and testimonials from such notables as Pinchas Zukerman, Yo-Yo Ma, and Itzhak Perlmanas well as some less-expected commentators such as Gregory Peck and Jimmy Connors. But the portrait that all give of this marvelous octogenarian is almost as dazzling and multifaceted as hearing him play. After all, master violinist is only one of the hats Stern can wear with aplomb. There's also the flashy celebrity who provided the music for Hollywood films like

Extractions: For 64 years Isaac Stern has been a great, and greatly loved, performing artist. His fame comes not only for his profound music-making, but for his gusto for life, his passionate dedication to sharing his knowledge and wisdom with younger musicians, and his determination in a good cause. Stern is also known as "The Man Who Saved Carnegie Hall." I found the origin of this moving memoir fascinating. Imagine two giants in their respective fields, one literary, the other a concert violinist, weaving a masterpiece of lyrical prose. Prose so touching, it reads like music. The celebrated writer Chaim Potok, author of many best-selling books, including "The Chosen" and "My Name is Asher Lev," conveys here in the most sympathetic and articulate way the power of Stern's mind, his wit, and his spirit. The two men spent a year talking and sharing their perceptions, and the result is a book in which Stern's voice comes through with complete conviction and persuasiveness. "It is astonishing to what degree performing artists are clasped to the bosoms of people everywhere. And if you don't exploit that generosity wrongly, it becomes a tremendous personal, private wealth. I'm very grateful to be a musician. Sometimes, when I'm on stage, I feel this wonderful sense of joy at being able to play. I feel blessed. It's extraordinary to have spent a lifetime making people enjoy themselves, and gaining a collective warmth and friendships that have lasted over decades. To be wanted and useful is the ultimate fulfillment for any artist. That's the greatest satisfaction an artist can have."

Extractions: What is at once serendipitous and no mistake at all is their release of volume upon volume of remastered recordings and performances by Isaac Stern, whom they denominate an 'Artist Laureate' (and how). Isaac Stern: A Life in Music is an incredible body of work, obviously: the only odd thing about it being the title, in that Stern looks likely to keep going for years to come (and more power to him, say I).
