ductor whose son performs
rock riffs in Israel will appear together
for the first time in the Detroit
Symphony Orchestra's "Tchaikovs

one of the most accessible of classical
String player Philip Quint
and maestro Uriel Segal will

The first evening features
best," says Quint, an American citi-
zen who escaped Russian anti-
Semitism in 1991 and graduated
from New York's Juilliard School in
1998. "It has all the colors of life
that I can imagine."
The violinist was introduced to his
instrument by his grandparents, who
also immigrated to America. He
boosted his career by earning honors
in several competitions, such as
Spain's Pablo de Sarasate
Philip Quint: "The violin expresses
my emotions best."
"The programs include the
most popular works ever
written for violin," says
Quint, 28, who recently
appeared with the Flint Symphony

"The Tchaikovsky concerto and
Marche Slave are probably the most
informed works in the world. They're
exciting for me every time, and I find

Quint, whose upcoming tour
schedule will reach from the
National Gallery in Washington,

"My grandparents had very good
voices, but the war destroyed their
plans for [becoming performers],"
says Quint, who grew up learning
Yiddish songs from them.
"My grandfather became a wonder-
ful engineer on a secret job that very
few Jewish people could get. He was
appointed to create the first top-
secret Soviet atomic warships.
Quint's mother, Lora Kvint, started
out as a classical pianist — but it was
pop music that appealed to her more.
"She met a famous Russian pop
star who became a friend of hers and
asked her to write a song for him,"
