Lot 155: General Motor Symphony concerts program, February 17,1935, signed in fountain pen by both Kindler & Huberman, on the front cover. There are 4 punch holds along left edge that do go through the program, otherwise in fine condition. Bronislaw Huberman (19 December 1882 - 16 June 1947) was a Jewish Polish violinist. He was known for his individualistic and personal interpretations and was praised for his tone color, expressiveness, and flexibility. Huberman is also remembered for founding the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra (then known as the Palestine Philharmonic) and thus providing refuge from the Third Reich for nearly 1,000 European Jews. Johannes Hendrikus Philip "Hans" Kindler (January 8, 1892 - August 30, 1949) was an American cellist and conductor. In 1914, he was offered first cello chair with the Philadelphia Orchestra. After 16 years he founded the National Symphony Orchestra in 1931 and was its conductor until 1949, performing many works of new composers. The Kindler Foundation Trust Fund was established in 1983 by the Kindler Foundation to offer concerts and to commission new chamber music in his memory.
