The Venice Baroque Orchestra, recognized as one of the premier ensembles devoted to period instrument performance, and Israeli mandolin virtuoso Avi Avital bring the Baroque to life with an infectious energy in this dazzling program. The New York Times has said of their collaboration “the chemistry between the ensemble and Mr. Avital was palpable.” Their recording, Vivaldi, won a 2015 ECHO Klassik Award. If you’re a fan of Baroque music, this is a concert you won’t want to miss.

“The words “superstar” and “mandolinist” still look odd next to each other. Yet in the classical world they are starting to be joined with some frequency … Avi Avital … was nothing short of electric.” — The New York Times

Diving into his obsession with Beethoven’s music, Jonathan Biss is in the fourth year of his Beethoven/5 commissioning project: the five Beethoven piano concertos each presented with a contemporary composer’s response. After welcoming the NY Premiere of Timo Andres’ entry in 2016, we are proud to be again a co-commissioner for the latest installment, Caroline Shaw’s Watermark, a response to Beethoven’s 3rd Piano Concerto.

“Biss radiates a confidence solidly based on prodigious technique, every never needing recharging, and a stylistic perception both intuitive and intelligent.” — The Washington Post

Our summer season comes to a close with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s led by their Principal Conductor Bernard Labadie and violinist Christian Tetzlaff. The program includes one of the most popular violin concertos in the repertoire, Mendelssohn’s E Minor, alongside his Hebrides concert overture and Beethoven’s First Symphony. Christian Tetzlaff is an “exceptional soloist … with soaring tone making every note sound with absolute clarity.” — Boston Classical Review

“Tetzlaff is, for my money, the finest violinist performing before the public today: he can invest a composition with a rich inner life while keeping the outward details of performance – intonation, power of projection, consistency of phrasing – completely invulnerable.” — The New Yorker, Russel Platt

Crowned “the king and queen of the banjo” by Paste Magazine, the husband-and-wife duo of Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn build upon the folk tradition to create a distinct style pulling inspiration from Chinese atonal music, the banjo’s rich American heritage, and more to stretch “their sound beyond bluegrass, across continents, and into everything from prog-rock to Eastern instrumentation” (NPR).

“Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn are two American musical treasures … But together they are a timeless power that must be witnessed.” — NPR

Since that time, besides receiving raves from every corner of the globe, he has won Gramophone’s 2016 Artist of the Year award and added two albums to his discography: Transcendental — a double album of Liszt’s works that won the Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Solo Album in 2018 — and this season’s Destination Rachmaninov: Departure. Now is not the time to miss the performance of this once-in-a-lifetime pianist!

“Few artists have burst onto the classical music scene in recent years with the incandescence of the pianist Daniil Trifonov.” — The New York Times
