Henryk Szeryng, the distinguished violinist
Accompanied by Clifton Helliwell

Henryk Szeryng, having recently recorded two great Beethoven sonatas with Arthur Rubinstein in America, is making his television debut in this country. Born in Warsaw, he was still a child when in 1928 he went to study with Carl Flesch in Berlin. Five years later he first appeared in public in the European capitals. During the war he offered his services to the Allies and gave over three hundred concerts to servicemen. Afterwards he made his home in Mexico: but he is a true citizen of the world, speaks six languages, has thirty-six violin concertos in his repertoire, and is convinced that music brings the nations together.
