Provenance

Raphael Fliegel (1918-2005) Lots 40 and 264 After a solo performance of the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto with the Houston Symphony at age fifteen in 1933, Raphael Fliegel became the youngest member of any symphony orchestra in the nation three years later. He went on to serve as Concertmaster from 1946 to 1972 under conductors which included Leopold Stokowski, Igor Stravinsky, Sir John Barbirolli, and Christoph Eschenbach. In 1975 he also began his teaching career at the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University, and was especially distinguished in the role of training musicians in chamber music as a member of the Shepherd Quartet. Maestro Fliegel devoted a lifetime to teaching and imparting a love of music to his students, who now belong to fine orchestras and chamber groups the world over.

Andy Summers (b. 1942) Lot 14 Best known for his work with The Police and Eric Burdon and the Animals, guitarist and composer Andy Summers has explored and combined music beyond the idioms of Rock, Jazz, Post-Punk, New Wave and Reggae. He has collaborated with Robert Fripp, The Soft Machine, Kevin Ayers, and Deborah Harry. His rich and varied discography includes the music of composers Thelonius Monk and Charles Mingus. In 1980, he earned a Grammy Award with The Police for his instrumental “Behind My Camel.”
