Violist Vardi dies

By Stephanie Green

 
Renowned violist Emanuel Vardi died at his home in North Bend, WA. on Jan. 29, according to the website www.vardiart.com.
 
"He was a true individual ‒ musically and artistically ‒ and he had a dose of 'rebel' in him, so he was always trying new things," his wife of 26 years, Lenore Vardi, says online.
 
Born in Jerusalem, Vardi was a child prodigy, accepted to Julliard at the age of twelve.
 
His career in music was wide-ranging including conducting, producing, recording, composing, teaching, and performing as one of the select few solo violists at Carnegie Hall.
 
In addition to his fame as a musician, Vardi was also a visual arts enthusiast who loaned his work to artistic causes.
