- It is often forgotten that Rudolf Serkin (1903-91) originally came from Central Europe, received his musical training in Vienna, and promoted the music of Schoenberg, Reger and Bartók before embarking on a career in the United States. There he became a key player in the musical world and an influential teacher (in Philadelphia, Marlboro, the Curtis Institute, etc.). Like Annie Fischer, Geza Anda and Daniel Barenboim, he was able to convey the unexpected spiritual link between Mozart’s giocoso and Bartok’s night music. Here, the consummate interpreter of Beethoven returns to his musical roots.
