Robert Mann was the founding member of The Juilliard String Quartet and musical giant in some of the world's greatest concert halls over the past 70+ years. Before his death at 97 in 2018, Mr. Mann completed his autobiography A PASSIONATE JOURNEY: A Memoir which offers lessons in leadership through his remarkable career as co-founder and first violin of The Juilliard String Quartet.
Perhaps nobody knew Mr. Mann better than his son Nicholas who followed in his father's footsteps. Professor Nicholas Mann is co-chair of Manhattan School of Music’s string department and has been a Juilliard faculty member since 2002. He is a founding member of the Mendelssohn String Quartet and he performs widely as a soloist and chamber musician.
In today’s interview with us, Nicholas shares some of his favorite memories of his father, the biggest challenge his father faced and how he grew through it, and powerful leadership and collaboration lessons you can apply in both your personal and professional life.
