Critic Harris Goldsmith has known classical music from both sides –as gifted performer and insightful listener. His unusual musical life is the subject of this Fishko Files.
Hearing this delightful piece I am reminded of my first job out of high school, working at Sam Goody's classical department at Rockefeller Center. Whenever Harris Goldsmith would come it, it was cause for rejoicing. What's stayed with me since the late '70's was Harris's erudition, but more than that, his enthusiasm--both of which were still very much in evidence when I saw (mostly overheard!) him at the recent series of Beethoven concerts by the Hagen String Quartet at the 92nd Street Y.www.linkedin.com/pub/david-lasson/36/405/827/
