‘His rich, warm timbre comes allied with a smooth, buttery l egato to set the heart aflutter.’ Limelight Magazine
Vadim Gluzman’s brilliant artistry brings to life the glorious violin tradition of the 19th and 20th centuries. He plays the extraordinary 1690 ‘ex-Leopold Auer’ Stradivari, on extended loan to him through the generosity of the Stradivari Society of Chicago. The first part of this program sees him alone on stage; in the second half he is joined by acclaimed Australian pianist Daniel de Borah.
The past and the present meet in the hands of Vadim Gluzman. A fiercely talented violinist in the grand Russian manner, Gluzman’s opulent sound and charisma float over fine orchestras around the globe. In recital, his probing intellect reveals lateral-thinking connections between works as contrasting as Arvo Pärt’s ecstatic slow-motion Speigel im Speigel and Beethoven’s Kreutzer Sonata. The line between Bach’s magisterial D-minor partita for solo violin and Lera Auerbach’s postmodernmeets-Baroque par.ti.ta is more direct. Both demonstrate Gluzman’s astonishing range and brilliant technique.
