The Greatest Violinist

Clip | 1m 19s

Bronislaw Huberman was a Polish violinist, but the child prodigy quickly became a citizen of the world. By the age of 12, he performed one of Brahms' works before the composer himself in Vienna. Huberman toured internationally as a youth and soon became the most famous violinist of his era. As violinist Ivry Gitlis puts it, "He was like Frank Sinatra of our time, or Rudolph Valentino."
