1/26: From Europe with Passion

Happy New Year to everyone!

On 1/26 I will be peforming the US premiere of new violin works by Polish composer Bartosz Jazdzewski, whose world premiere took place last June at my concert in London. There are also some rarely performed Eastern European gems from early 1900's, where I am very lucky to have copies of the scores. It will be at the Makor Concert Hall in Brighton, and I will be accompanied by Sergey Khanukaev.

Sergey and I have already appeared at Makor earlier this year, as a conductor-concertmaster team for Boston Vocal Arts Studio's production of Tchaikovsky's opera "Iolanta".  After that performance, the Boston Musical Intelligencer specifically praised our team for creating "lush-sounding" music. Let's hope they like our work as a violinist-pianist team even more!

For the second half of the concert, I have the privilege of jamming with a great jazz pianist Leo Loginov Katz, in a program of European Gypsy Jazz.  I've performed this music before, but in a much smaller venue. By request, I am bringing it to Makor as part of this concert.  This will be an evening not be missed!
