JONNY Gandelman / J.S. BACH
Bach's Complete Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin
First year Terry and Rick Stein concert
Russia-born violinist Johnny Gandelsman the singular musical voice comes from the spirit of collaboration. As a member of Yo-Yo Ma Silk Road Ensemble and the Brooklyn Reiter String Quartet, he has distilled the creative sensibilities of a wide range of master musicians from around the world. On MIT last January, Gandelsman returned to a small but crowded house after the classical repertoire with a pop-up, unadvertised recital, performing Bach's Complete Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin. Lloyd Schwartz, describing the event on NPR Fresh Air, said, "I've heard some famous violinists attempt this epic performance, but none of them grabbed me and delighted me as thoroughly as Gandelsman." Gandelsman is now taking his powerful rendition of these landmark works Concert Hall, reprising its captivating performance for the first annual Terry and Rick Stein concert at the MIT Kresge Auditorium on October 30th.
Johnny Gandelsman has worked with artists such as Yo-Yo Ma, Bono, Osvaldo Golijov, David Byrne, Bela Fleck, Kayhan Kalhor, Suzanne Vega, James Levine, Mark Morris, Alim Qasimov and Fargana Qasimova, Nigel Kennedy, and Anna Sofie von Otter. In recent years he has premiered Zhurbin works by Lev "Ljova", Dmitri Yanov-Yanovsky, Vijay Iyer, Bela Fleck, Daniel Cords, Rubin Kodheli, Dana Lyn, Gabriel Kahane, Colin Jacobsen, Shara Worden, John Zorn, Christina Courtin, Ethan Iverson, Padma Newsome, Gregory Saunier, Evan Ziporyn, Bill Frisell and Nik Bartsch, as well as a violin concerto by Gonzalo Grau. In 2008, he formed a Circle of Records, award releasing discs to win awards from the Knights, Silk Road Ensemble, Nicholas Cords, and Brooklyn Horsemen.
Presented by the MIT Center for Art, Science & Technology (CAST) as part of the 2015-16 MIT Sounding Series.
