I got there on November 22nd, 1965, arriving on the same plane as David Oistrakh, whom I met at the Chicago airport. Gringold and his wife were at the Bloomington airport to pick me up, and Oistrakh thought they were there for him! I was seventeen years old. I had just won a prize at the Paganini Competition. I had developed my technique quite a bit. But from my first lesson with Gingold it was obvious that music wa the main focus, technique just being a means to an end. Musicianship, music-making, and chamber music became my new life .. Under Gingold's guidance being "only a soloist" could no longer be my goal. For him it was all the same: orchestra parts, chamber music parts, solo parts • all got the same great attention, enthusiasm and love. So even though I had been groomed to become a soloist, my new ambition was to become a well-rounded musician. After three years of study I was appointed to. the faculty as his assistant. In 1972, at the age of 23, I joined the Chicago Symphony, as assistant concert master. I was the youngest member of the symphony at the time. I also became the conductor of a chamber orchestra and I invited Gingold to play the Bach Double Concerto with me. I am now about the same age as Gingold was when I met him. My hope is to be even half as in- ALEXANDER KATS A first class Russian-trained professional pianist/teacher is now accepting students for regular private lessons or repertoire coaching, from advanced (ARCT, universi):y) to all grades of RCM.

What advice, above all, would you give to someone looking for a teacher for a young person, or for themselves? For a young person I would say !Dok for a teacher with a lot of experience teaching children, because it's quite a differenrthing. Although I have had students from the age of 5 to the age of 75, my inclination would be to refer very young people to teachers who specialize in starting young musicians. I feel that it's a special skill. And it's Jacques lsraelievitch with Josef Ginnever to late to begin. gold, circa 1967, at flldiana University For an adult I would say look for somebody who will approach the playing of the instrument mostly from a musical/philosophical point of view - as an extension of Ii fe rather than taking a purely technical focus. Jacques lsraelievitch will be giving a concert with his son, percussionist Michael lsraelievitch on Fathers' Day, Sunday June 19 at 4pm. They will be joined by Winona Zelenka (cello) and Ting Li (viola), at Temple_ Sinai. Jacques and Michael are also giving a recital at Long & Mc­ Quade 011 Bloor Street West (2pm June I 8th), and are in the process of making a recording of music for violin and percussion. !$;_ 'ELAIM YOUR VOICE Organic and functional vocal training to gain access to your full range, resonance and vocal freedom.
