Ccyale_240_graybg_small Climate Connections is a 90-second daily (M-F) module that's produced in partnership with the Yale Center for Environmental Communication and hosted by Dr. Tony Leiserowitz. It covers the ways climate change is impacting our lives, and what diverse people and organizations are doing to reduce the associated risks.

EXP 19-54 E: A Visit with Arnold Steinhardt, 10/4/2019

From The WFMT Radio Network | Part of the Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin series | 58:58

Exploring_music_logo_small Exploring Music spent a couple of marvelous days with one of the world’s violin giants, Arnold Steinhardt, first violinist for 45 years of the Guarneri Quartet. This week will feature Arnold talking about his youth in L.A., his time with George Szell and the Cleveland Orchestra, his studies with Josef Szigeti, and his time with the Guarneri Quartet. Arnold was keen that we listen to some of the great musicians who'd inspired him along the way — a who's who of remarkable figures —Kreisler, Elman, Heifetz, on and on. Arnold is not only a towering musician — yeah, he stands six feet three, but I'm talking about fiddle playing — he is also beloved among his colleagues for his generosity, intelligence, and kindness.
