Remembering Violinist Eugene Fodor : NPR

In the 1970s, violinist Eugene Fodor was a sensation. He was called “the Mick Jagger of classical music” and a “cowboy fiddler.” Young, handsome and extremely talented, Fodor became the first American to win the top prize in the Soviet Union’s prestigious Tchaikovsky Competition. Fodor died last week at his home in Arlington, Va. He was 60 years old.
