Louis Farrakhan performs Mendelssohn Violin Concerto


Meet British Bloke Who Banked £50 MILLION Working From Home PC: http://www.copytherichguy.com/ In May of 1993, Minister Louis Farrakhan staged a recital of the Violin Concerto, Op.64, by the Jewish composer Felix Mendelssohn. For the eighteen months leading up to his performance, Farrakhan was coached by Elaine Skorodin Fohrman, a Jewish violin virtuoso and member of Chicago's Roosevelt University where she taught classical violin. Farrakhan's choice of the Mendelssohn piece was attributed by some observers to the composer's identity as a Jew - a gesture widely viewed as an "olive branch" to the Nation of Islam leader's Jewish detractors. Farrakhan's first rendition of the violin concerto occurred as part of a three-day symposium, 'Gateways: Classical Music and the Black Musician' , at the Reynold's Auditorium in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, on 18 April 1993. The program included a rendition of the Glazunov Violin Concerto with former New York Philharmonic member, Sanford Allen, as soloist and the Saint Sean's Concerto for Violoncello featuring University of Michigan professor, Anthony Elliott. Farrakhan prefaced his recital by declaring that he would "try to do with music what cannot be done with words and try to undo with music what words have done." Shortly thereafter, Farrakhan reprised his euphonious peace gesture before a Chicago audience of three thousand on May 17 on his eighteenth-century Guadagnini violin: https://www.larouchepub.com/eiw/public/1995/eirv22n29-19950721/eirv22n29-19950721_037-farrakhan_plays_mendelssohn.pdf To obtain the full DVD, contact: http://store.finalcall.com/ -------------------------- 21st February 2015 will mark the 50th anniversary of the Malcolm X assassination and we are calling on Louis Farrakhan to publish all of the NOI’s files and records, in full and without alteration, on the five known assassins of Malcolm X: William X Bradley, Leon Davis, Talmadge Hayer, Albert Benjamin Thomas and Wilbert McKinney.
