She recounts how her first students who would go on to become classical music legends like Shmuel Ashkenasi, Aaron Rosand, members of the Guarneri Quartet, Jaime Laredo, Benita Valente, and many members of the Philadelphia Orchestra; her first private students who went on to pass the rigorous auditions at Curtis and perform with the Philadelphia Orchestra; her secrets on how she remains healthy, active and productive at age 100; and shares her thoughts on how women’s careers in music have changed over her lifetime (she is passionate about women’s rights in all aspects of life).
