Fun Fact: Until saved by Isaac Stern's efforts in 1960, Carnegie Hall was due to be replaced by a 44-story office tower, faced with fire-engine-red, porcelain-covered steel panels.
Keeping The Doors Open commemorates Isaac Stern’s 90th birthday and his endeavors that sparked a movement to save Carnegie Hall from demolition 50 years ago.
Keeping The Doors Open features the first CD release of the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto, as well as a beloved performance of the first movement of Tchaikovsky’s Piano Trio recorded in the Hall* by the premier violin virtuoso himself.
* Previously released on Concert of the Century.
