Isaac Stern in the Library of Congress

Again this week I want to share with you a video featuring the late Isaac Stern. This video is part of a series celebrating the Library of Congress and its vast holdings. Stern examines manuscripts of concertos by Mozart and Brahms. I heard Stern in his prime give two of the finest performances of the Brahms Violin Concerto I ever expect to hear. The tone, the passion the phrasing were all unforgettable. Anything Stern has to say about the Brahms Concerto is worth hearing, and not once but several times.
