THE MIRACULOUS VIOLIN: AN EVENING WITH VADIM GLUZMAN & ANGELA YOFFE
$45 Orchestra & Mezzanine / $25 Balcony
In technique and sensibility, Vadim Gluzman harkens back to the Golden Age of violinists of the 19th and 20th centuries, while demonstrating the passion and energy of the 21st century. Lauded by both critics and audiences as a performer of depth, virtuosity and technical brilliance, he has appeared throughout the world as a soloist and in a duo setting with his wife, pianist Angela Yoffe.
Gluzman’s warm tone, developed out of his miraculous “ex-Leopold Auer” Strad takes its inspiration from the timeless examples of Mischa Elman, Nathan Milstein and David Oistrakh. A legendary violin in the hands of a master, and a dazzling holiday program with music of Mozart, Stravinsky, Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev and Castelnuovo-Tedesco.
