"A dynamic biography of Isaac Stern, one of the twentieth century's greatest violinists. In this concise yet comprehensive biography of Isaac Stern's life and work, historian David Schoenbaum constructs a multi-faceted portrait of Stern as a musician, activist, cultural figure, and community member. Schoenbaum digs into Stern's childhood as the son of Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe, his early days as a young violinist, and his legendary musical career. He also explores Stern's career as a patron of the arts, including his leadership at Carnegie Hall and involvement in the National Endowment for the Arts. Well-rounded, compact and readable, and incandescent with Stern's wit and wisdom, this is a portrait of Stern from four angles: the first-generation American dreamer, the virtuoso and professional, the public citizen, and the creator of musical and cultural legacy"--,Provided by publisher.
