« The art of Philadephia-born violinist Berl Senofsky won immediate recognition in June 1955, when he became the first American to win the prestigious Queen Elisabeth international Competition in Belgium.
He strove to reveal the meaning and truth of everything he and his students played. His studio was a Mecca for the most gifted students at Peabody – not only violinists, but also anyone else who wanted to become a musician. What characterizes the Senofsky sound so well nurtured by Persinger and Galamian – the grand sense of line, the muscular tension maintained throughout any rendition of a piece, the smooth application of bow pressure without undue vibrato, the resilience of the dynamics – remind us of the natural athleticism that marked Senofsky’s physique, that had not music fulfilled his calling, the sport of football lay in wait. » [Gary Lemco]
