  • Tid Bit – Brahms’ biographer Max Kalbeck tells of the composer’s response to the 14-year-old Huberman’s performance of Brahms’ violin concerto: “As soon as Brahms heard the sound of the violin, he pricked up his ears, during the Andante he wiped his eyes, and after the Finale he went into the green room, embraced the young fellow, and stroked his cheeks. When Huberman complained that the public applauded after the cadenza, breaking into the lovely Cantilena, Brahms replied, ‘You should not have played the cadenza so beautifully.’ ”

    My parents, Alberto and Angelina Huberman, told the story of Bronislaw Huberman´s life to a Mexican writer, Arturo Azuela -who was at that time my brother Rafael´s father-in-law- and he wrote a book on the stolen violin episode:
