RIP Robert Mann (1920-2018)

Robert Mann

Saddened by the death of Robert Mann. A founding member of the Juilliard String Quartet, Mann was its first violinist for decades as well as a master teacher and composer: his melodramas are memorable pieces. Countless quartets benefited from his guidance.

Mann was one of the finest musicians I ever encountered. I am truly glad that he was active during my time at Juilliard.
