Giuseppe Sinopoli
was a well-known conductor and composer as well as a physician, psychiatrist and anthropologist.
Both were among the many gifted men and women whose deaths were mourned by the classical music world in 2001.
Music lovers also said goodbye to the composer Iannis Xenakis , to Martha Mödl , the renowned German mezzo-soprano, to the conductor Peter Maag and, just last week, to Edward Downes , the writer and musicologist best known as the host of the Texaco Opera Quiz on the Metropolitan Opera's weekly radio broadcasts.
Isaac Stern, 81, died on 22 September. Long recognized as one of the world's top virtuosos and widely known for his efforts on behalf of Carnegie Hall, Stern was responsible for helping generations of musicians during a career that began in 1935. He left a rich legacy of recordings, including concerto performances with major orchestras and chamber works with such artists as Leonard Rose, Eugene Istomin and Yo-Yo Ma.

Isaac Stern
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. A movie about Stern's trip to China, "From Mao to Mozart," won an Academy Award. Stern found time to play a role in the Broadway show "Tonight We Sing" in 1952; he also inaugurated the Mann Auditorium in Tel Aviv (1957) and founded the Jerusalem Music Centre in 1973. In addition, Stern has served as the president of the American-Israel Cultural Foundation, and was appointed in 1965 as a member of the National Council on Arts.

Isaac Stern.
"My First 79 Years." October 25, 1999. The violinist Isaac Stern listens to young string players waiting to see if they will dare him not to listen. He sounds like the basketball coach Red Auerbach looking for young players who'll say, with eight seconds on the clock, "give me the ball." Or as Isaac Stern says about Itzhak Perlman and Yo-Yo Ma when he heard them as children: "They didn't ask whether they could play; they demanded my ears. It is that innate certainty that one has something to say, even in the very earliest years-a kind of reveling in one's own talent-that distinguishes the really uniquely gifted ones from so many others." For most of his 79 years Isaac Stern has been one of those gifted ones himself, with something incomparable to say on his fiddle and after the concert, too - about saving Carnegie Hall, about saving Israel and about reaching out to China, about teaching and performance standards if American arts are to lead the world. We're talking with Isaac Stern about his first 79 years in the second hour of the Connection today, and his new book, "My First 79 Years."

Remembering A Good Man
N ever has the popular phrase "life is choice" been more relevant than in recent days. Some men choose evil. Others choose good.
Now is the time for remembering, and celebrating, the life and lessons of violinist Isaac Stern, who died Sept. 22 at the age of 81. Stern chose to be, day in and day out, a Good Man.
Of the thousands who died in New York because of evil men, the passing of Stern in a Manhattan hospital, of heart failure after a long illness, might seem like a sad footnote in a huge tome of grief.
Yet Isaac Stern, the Good Man, is a model from which New Yorkers can draw inspiration to rebuild their shattered city and disrupted lives.
Stern celebrated the human race. He contributed, he inspired, he built up, he did not destroy. He kept going until he dropped, raising money for architecture and music, mentoring gifted young students, standing up for beauty and facing down tyranny.
Without him, there would be no Carnegie Hall. It was headed for the wrecking ball before he dedicated himself to saving it. Thus, one of New York's grandest symbols and civic institutions survives, in large part, because one man worked his heart out to make it so. Its main concert hall is named in his honor.

The 2,804-seat landmark was inaugurated with a five-day festival which featured guest conductor Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky. The New York Times praised the acoustics and architecture with the headline, "It Stood the Test Well." As writer Carter B. Horsley recently remarked, "Carnegie Hall... has become the definitive embodiment of the ne plus ultra, the attainment of extraordinary excellence . For over a century, it has been the dream and crowning achievement of every musician to perform at Carnegie Hall." Celebrated violinist Isaac Stern was credited with saving Carnegie Hall from demolition in 1960. He lobbied ardently for preservation. "I could not see the one building that represented the American tradition of music internationally be torn down," he explained. Just before a crucial deadline, the city purchased "The Place Where Music Lives" for $5 million.

Violinist, Ardent Zionist Isaac Stern, 81
FORWARD CORRESPONDENT Isaac Stern, who died of heart failure September 22 at the age of 81, was remembered this week as one of the greatest violinists of the 20th century, but also, like the Jew he was, as one who could not help arguing with the world to make it a better place. Whether organizing, preserving, rainmaking, mentoring, buttonholing or just lending his prestige and presence in solidarity, Stern was seen as an embodiment of the rabbinic principle that one righteous person can make all the difference. "Being a Jew means caring about more than things within your own little sphere," said Stern's daughter, Shira Stern, who carried on the family tradition of making a difference when she became one of the first female rabbis in the United States. "And in that respect, my father was an extraordinary Jew. He was passionate for causes of social justice, for education and for preservation of what is best in society." In a small but typical example, Stern, himself a Russian immigrant, jumped at the chance to be one of the first artists to tour the Soviet Union when Nikita Khrushchev began to open up the country after the death of Stalin in 1956. As anticipated, Stern's violin playing raised the roof in his performances. But he raised a bit more than the roof by also publicly engaging Khrushchev in a debate about artistic freedom, instantly putting the issue on the front burner internationally.

Monday, September 24, 2001 Violinist Isaac Stern dies at 81 PARIS Isaac Stern, who has died in New York at the age of 81, was for more than 60 years one of the world's most accomplished and best-loved virtuouso violinists and a man always keen to share his enthusiasm in the service of encouraging musical talent. He was a friend and selfless mentor to generations of musicians. The English newspaper The Guardian once wrote of him: "No violinist of our time has had a wider influence than Isaac Stern." That opinion was shared by his peers and those who worked and recorded with him. Pianist Emmanuel Ax summed up his perfectionism by saying: "He remained an eternal student, looking for new ways to perform works that he had played for so many decades." Fellow violinist Pinchas Zuckerman expressed the opinion that Stern was "a 20th century master" and said: "I would have to write volumes to express my gratitude for what Isaac Stern has represented to me and to the music world." Born in Kreminiecz, in the Ukraine, on July 21, 1920, he was taken to the US at the age of 10 months, where his family settled in San Francisco.

Isaac Stern at 80: A Carnegie Hall Celebration
Saturday, September 23 - Sunday, September 24, 2000
Carnegie Hall Corporation

During the year 2000, Isaac Stern celebrated two major milestones: his 80th birthday and his 40th anniversary as president of Carnegie Hall.
Isaac Stern and Carnegie Hall are inextricably linked: without his charismatic leadership in the early 1960s, the Hall would have faced the wrecking ball and a red skyscraper would have been erected in its place. Forty years later, his vision and leadership have allowed Carnegie Hall to flourish as a vital international musical, cultural and educational center where groundbreaking programs engage and inform an ever-growing audience of enthusiasts.
To mark these significant moments in his and our lives, Carnegie Hall hosted a two-day celebration of his extraordinary legacy, with an ongoing exhibit about Mr. Stern that ran through December 31, 2000 in the Rose Museum. Other events of the two-day celebration included a retrospective of films featuring Mr. Stern shown in Weill Recital Hall; two family concert matinees in Stern Auditorium, two special concerts featuring young artists in Weill Recital Hall, and a festive evening concert in Stern Auditorium with distinguished friends and colleagues.
Isaac Stern at 80: A Carnegie Hall Celebration has been made possible by the generosity of Walter and Marge Scheuer and Family.

Violinist Isaac Stern Dies at 81; Led Efforts to Save Carnegie Hall
September 23, 2001
Isaac Stern, a violinist who in his prime was considered one of the great instrumentalists of the 20th century, and who also became an important power broker in the classical music world after he led a successful campaign to save Carnegie Hall from destruction, died at a Manhattan hospital yesterday. He was 81 and lived in Manhattan and Gaylordsville, Conn.
A spokeswoman for Carnegie Hall said he died from heart failure after an extended hospital stay.
The American classical music world has produced few images as characteristic as that of Mr. Stern, a violin in his hand and a pair of horn- rimmed eyeglasses perched atop his head. It was the image of a musician at work — typically rehearsing and persuading rather than performing, casual rather than formal, engaged rather than passive. Countless photographs and caricatures, and miles of film and videotape, captured Mr. Stern preparing for concerts, coaching young ensembles during his master classes, or proclaiming the glories of Carnegie Hall, of which he was president.
He was, in fact, nearly as well- known for his devotion to Carnegie Hall as for his violin playing. He gave more than 200 performances there, the first in 1943. When the hall was about to be demolished to make way for an office tower in 1960 — the prevailing wisdom was that Lincoln Center, then under construction, would replace Carnegie — Mr. Stern helped start a drive among musicians and the musical public that saved the hall. He was then elected president of the Carnegie Hall Corporation, which runs the hall.
