Grammy–award winning violinist Johnny Gandelsman returns to Boston to present an evening of music for solo violin, juxtaposing the work of Bach with works by 20th-century giants Igor Stravinsky and Philip Glass. The performance will also include Boston premieres of works commissioned by Gandelsman from Edward Perez and Akshaya A.Tucker.
Johnny Gandelsman's musical voice reflects the artistic collaborations he has been a part of since moving to the United States in 1995. As a founding member of Brooklyn Rider and a member of the Silkroad Ensemble, Gandelsman has worked closely with such luminaries as Yo-Yo Ma, Bono, Osvaldo Golijov, David Byrne, Bela Fleck, Kayhan Kalhor, Suzanne Vega, Alim Qasimov and Fargana Qasimova, Mark Morris, Anne Sofie von Otter, and Joshua Redman. Gandelsman integrates a wide range of creative sensibilities into a unique style among today's violinists, one that—according to the Boston Globe—possesses "a balletic lightness of touch and a sense of whimsy and imagination."
