This chapter will develop over time, to highlight special moments in Istomin’s life and career that have not been the subject of a separate article on this site.
These will be glimpses from his personal life such as his childhood and relationship with his parents, his meeting and marriage to Marta, his cult of friendship, taste for gastronomy and wine, etc.
These will also be moments from his career, some special concerts (his debut with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra in 1943, all his recitals at Carnegie Hall…), some exceptional tours (in the Far East in 1956, in Bulgaria in 1963…), and his 75th birthday Jubilee in 2000.
