 Update me on new releases by Lysy

Alberto Lysy (1935 - 2009)

Alberto Lysy took his first violin lessons with his Ukrainian father, going on to learn with Ljerko Spiller before travelling to Europe at the age of seventeen to further his studies. Failing to sustain a living in London by busking, he was compelled to return to Argentina in 1953. Despite this difficult start, in 1955 he became the first Argentinian to win a prize at the Queen Elisabeth Competition, following which Princess Lilian of Belgium played duets with him at the palace. Furthermore, Lysy captured the imagination of jurist Menuhin who arranged a Rockefeller Foundation grant for him, became his teacher, and gave him a 1742 Guarnerius violin. Throughout his career Lysy followed Menuhin’s example in devoting time to pedagogy, founding the International Menuhin Academy in Gstaad and initiating several festivals to this end.
