Helmut Zacharias

Helmut Zacharias (January 27, 1920 ~ February 28, 2002) was a German violinist. He started having lessons at the age of 4. At 6 he played at the cabaret Faun in Berlin and had his first radio broadcast five years later. In the 1950s he was considered to be one of the best jazz violinists of Europe and was dubbed "The Magic Violinist" and "Germany's Mr. Violin", selling over 14 million records worldwide. He played together with many other famous artists, including Yehudi Menuhin and had his own TV show from 1968 to 1973. He died in 2002 in Tessin, Switzerland. We have added several selections from his Christmas albums to our radio stream playlist for the yuletide season. On the evening December 18th we will program all beautiful instrumental Christmas selections through Christmas Day. Happy Holidays!
