Erica Morini short biography and select discography
Erica (or Erika) Morini (1904-1995) was born in Vienna and had her first tutelage from her father, who was a professional teacher who ran his own music school in Vienna. She made her first recording for the Victor Talking Machine Company in 1921. The Strad obituary recorded her as “most bewitching woman violinist of this century.”
Someone, somewhere, has her Davidoff Stradivarius; it was stolen from her apartment shortly before her death and has never been recovered.
