April 2021: IDAGIO with the Knights and off to London!

Hello friends! Our celebration of Beethoven with The Knights continues! Following the successful release of our Beethoven/Brahms recording last month (here), we can’t wait to share this new arrangement of the Beethoven concerto with the world on IDAGIO’s Global Concert Hall! The broadcast, which premieres here on April 17, will be filled with conversation too, and will be available on-demand until early May. I’m so glad to be back at Boston’s WGBH Studios to create this with friends after the solo program we shared there on IDAGIO in the fall!

Shortly before this new stream, I’m headed across the pond…for the first time in far too long! If you’re near London, I hope you can make it to Royal Festival Hall on April 14 to hear me performing the Tchaikovsky concerto with the London Philharmonic Orchestra.

If you’re looking for something beyond the classics, it’s also not too late to tune into my free livestream with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra. You can hear the great mix of violin music by Pärt and Boulogne (Chevalier de Saint-Georges) until April 26 here!

March 2021: Newest Recording & Concerts in NY & AZ (Live)!

As I mentioned in my last post, a major highlight for this month is the new release of this awesome album of the Beethoven and Brahms violin concerti with The Knights, out on my label Canary Classics. I’m so excited to share my first-ever Beethoven concerto recording and can’t wait to hear what you think!

Tied in with this release are two exciting events with the 92nd Street Y, first a deep dive into the Beethoven concerto on March 3 with my pals and Artistic Directors of The Knights Colin & Eric Jacobsen, moderated by former WQXR Host Naomi Lewin (details here), and then a performance with Colin, Eric, my wife Adele, and musicians from the Knights of the Beethoven Concerto and an amazing string quartet by Boulogne on March 14 (details here).

Later this month I’m also beyond thrilled to give my first in-person recital in well over a year! Whether you live in the Phoenix area or wish to watch the live-stream, I hope you can safely join me for this recital on March 20, which includes some favorites from recent recitals as well as Fratres, a great work by Arvo Pärt that I recently performed with the Boston Symphony. I get the chance to share that same work with you again soon, along with a great concerto by our friend Boulogne with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, which premieres online here March 26 and remains available through the end of the season.

February 2021: First Solo Release in 5 years (!!) & Return to Philly

Before I dive into my one precious engagement of February, I have some big news to share! Over the next month, I have two new recordings that will be released, my first solo releases in a long time! First, on February 26, the San Francisco Symphony will release a wonderful compilation of works by Berg including his violin concerto featuring yours truly Then, on March 12, my friends The Knights will release a fantastic new recording of the Beethoven and Brahms concerti, marking my first ever recording of the Beethoven concerto (though I can’t count how many times I’ve performed it on stage)!

Until then, I hope you’ll join me as I return to the Philadelphia Orchestra February 4 (available for 10 days here) for a performance of the beautiful Butterfly Lovers Concerto in celebration of the Lunar New Year. Also, in case you missed the virtual premiere of my concert with the Boston Symphony late last month, you can still catch it here until February 27!
