WORLD PREMIERE: O, For Solo Violin & Tape

February 18 @ 7:30 pm

SF PERFORMANCES PRESENTS: JOHNNY GANDELSMAN, VIOLIN

Presented by San Francisco Performances

\"\"

Violinist Johnny Gandelsman\’s solo performance is about counterpoint, pairing unaccompanied Sonatas and Partitas by J.S. Bach with newly commissioned works as part of his \”This is America\” project. Celebrating the country\’s rich cultural tapestry and myriad perspectives, the program also features composers Clarice Assad, Rhiannon Giddens, Terry Riley, Tyshawn Sorey and Conrad Tao. The Boston Globe describes Gandelsman as \”a delightfully unconventional fiddler…with a balletic lightness of touch and a sense of whimsy and imagination that are rare.\”

Grammy award-winning violinist and producer Johnny Gandelsman\’s musical voice reflects the artistic collaborations he has been a part of since moving to the United States in 1995. Richard Brody of The New Yorker has called Johnny Gandelsman \”revelatory\” in concert, placing him in the company of \”radically transformative\” performers like Maurizio Pollini, Peter Serkin and Christian Zacharias.
