Paul Shure (Conductor, Violin)

Born: USA

The American violinist and conductor, Paul Shure, was co-founder of the Hollywood String Quartet in 1947, the first American chamber music ensemble to reach an international audience. The other original members of the Quartet were Felix Slatkin and on violin, Paul Robyn on viola, and Eleanor Aller Slatkin on cello. From their foundation in 1946 until the end of the 1950's, they explored a massive amount of chamber music repertory that had largely been ignored, not only in America but Europe as well, introducing several pieces in their definitive interpretations on record (for the Capitol label) and even doing one recording session with Frank Sinatra along the way. The Quartet disbanded in 1961.

Paul Shure was also active in the 20th-Century Fox studio orchestra (conducted by Felix Slatkin).
