Up and away.
I confess: I knew this artist, and also have this recording. To discover that there is a video of this is like a little present.
Helmut Zacharias was a somewhat of a wunderkind. He performed the concert for violin and orchestra in G-major by Mozart at age 11 (his birthday was also the same as mozart) . After the war he started to play jazz and won many awards for that. In the 50’s he mixed Jazz with Deutsche Schlagers, and performed with very large orchestra’. He even got his own German TV-show.
He died in 2002 at age 82 and was a multi-millionaire. He sold over 14 million records.
There is much more to tell, but first: enjoy this, I know I did.
