He extended the legacy of the Russian violin school through teaching and performing, particularly the traditions of Leopold Auer and Eugene Ysaye.

“It’s a grand tradition of violin playing, where you’re not cloning people, giving them all the same advice so that they all sound the same," Rosand said in 2008. "It’s a freedom of creative interpretation in making music.”

Rosand soloed extensively with major orchestras around the world throughout his life. He played on the ex-Kochanski Guarneri del Gesù violin until its sale 2009.
