Violist Paul Neubauer and violinist Aaron Boyd host an evening celebrating William Primrose (1904-1982), the Scottish violist and teacher who is universally revered as the greatest violist who ever lived. Primrose's solo and chamber music recordings attest unequivocally that he was, in fact, the only violist who could "keep up" with Heifetz, and his playing truly has to be heard to be believed.

The Musical Heritage series explores the musical legacies of towering figures in classical music through exceptional conversations with the artist's students and colleagues along with film clips, historical photos and relevant documents.
