Notes & Reviews:

Roman Totenberg has remained a presence in the music world since the age of seven when he first performed as a child prodigy during the turmoil of the Russian Revolution. Even today, five years after a final recital at age 95, his days involve teaching, illuminating music, coaching artists and preparing the next generation of performers. These recordings span a 50-year period of his career from 1943 to 1996.
