An Evening with Johnny Gandelsman in a Concert to Benefit CMW

November 9, 2017



 

 

 



Community MusicWorks invites you to an evening with world-renowned violinist Johnny Gandelsman in a solo concert to benefit CMW.

Join us Thursday, November 9 at 7pm as Johnny Gandelsman of Silk Road and Brooklyn Rider performs the Six Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin by J.S. Bach.  All proceeds of this concert will support the free music education programs at Community MusicWorks.

To hear Johnny Gandelsman play solo Bach is to hear someone with an impeccable technique and mastery of the instrument who has re-imagined these works and the gestures required to play them. Having grown up in Russia and Israel, and later studying at the Curtis Institute of Music, Johnny's training readied him for a major international solo career. Instead, Johnny's individual voice has led him to absorb styles of violin playing from historical recordings, Irish fiddlers, banjo virtuosos, Persian musicians and more, and he has incorporated all these elements into his sensibilities as a violinist, basically inventing his own style of violin playing.

The Six Bach Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin are some of the deepest, most spiritually rich music for the violin (or for any instrument). They are part of every violinist's journey throughout a lifetime--from learning the simpler movements in student years to tackling the signature epic movements at later stages, including the fugues, the Chaconne, and others. Few violinists record the entire set of six Sonatas and Partitas and fewer still perform them all at once. Johnny has done both, and will perform them as a benefit for CMW.

This is an event not to be missed!
