He is also the music director of the famous John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. An orphan, he was born to an anti–Nazi demonstrator father who was politically active against the Nazi movement in Germany and was killed for it. Traumatic after this, he began playing music and found that he enjoyed doing so. He was adopted by his mother’s cousin and by the age of eleven, he had grown fully fond of classical music.
