Below is the Start Over Context of Famed Violinist, Rubinoff and His Violin
Rubinoff did the start over thing. He left Russia under the wing of Victor Herbert, becoming his protege. Dave and his entire family had lived in abject poverty and with anti–Jewish sentiment while in Russia and Poland. He rose through his own efforts; from selling newspapers on a street corner to conducting and working orchestras for both the Paramount Theater in Brooklyn and Pictures in Hollywood. He lead the Chicago Symphony in a concert attended by 225,000 people in 1937. They turned away 25,000 at the door. Among many accomplishments, he played for 5 American Presidents. Talking about the hardships of the Great Depression Dave says in his autobiography: “I guessed the ones who were committing suicide hadn’t learned to throw ace-duce and start over again.”
