There is so much more to learn about Zenobia Powell Perry; here are a couple websites to get started:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zenobia_Powell_Perryhttps://www.jeanniegaylepool.com/zenobia-powell-perry-1Also today: Beethoven's only Violin Concerto had an unsuccessful premiere then languished, unplayed, until decades after Beethoven’s death in 1827. It wasn’t until Felix Mendelssohn conducted it in London in 1844 that the Concerto became a standard in the violin concerto repertoire. That performance featured the 12 year old violinist Joseph Joachim who would later become perhaps the greatest violinist of the 19th century and friend of Johannes Brahms who composed HIS only Violin Concerto in collaboration with Joachim to whom Brahms dedicated it. The first of those two great concertos that Joachim had a hand in creating or, in this case, reviving, the Beethoven Concerto, is today's Midday Masterpiece.
