Nathan Milstein - the 1910's

from From Russia to the West : the musical memoirs and reminiscences of Nathan Milstein, page 25:

I remember Miron Poliakin playing in class, gracefully performing Tchaikovsky’s Waltz-Scherzo. Poliakin was a marvellous violinist, though not very consistent. Ideally, an artist should always play above a certain level.
