Stephen Erdely; MIT teacher known for musical duets

As part of a performing duo many Boston concertgoers treasured, Stephen Erdely played violin with a sound that seemingly harkened to his youth in Hungary, during the gathering storms of conflict leading up to World War II.

Globe reviewer Richard Buell wrote that during a 1979 concert at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dr. Erdely had “a tone that, at its starkest, can remind you of a straight, taut unsheathed wire” – one that “doesn’t whisper sweet nothings.”
