The virtuoso concert violinist Bronislaw Huberman (1882-1947) made his professional debut at 12. How virtuosic was he? In 1896, he played the Brahms Violin Concerto with a much-impressed composer in the audience. “He had the best right hand of anybody!” the violinist and violist Pinchas Zukerman declares in “Orchestra of Exiles.” Huberman’s sound, adds violinmaker Amnon Weinstein, was “very intensive, like he was going to eat the violin.”
