Stravinsky — The Soldier’s Tale
The Wang Chamber Series is generously endowed by David & Cecile Wang.
This presentation is part of Artis—Naples’ 2017-18 season theme, Languages of Art.
Vadim Gluzman’s extraordinary artistry brings to life the glorious violinistic tradition of the 19th and 20th centuries. Gluzman’s wide repertoire embraces adventurous new music and his performances are heard around the world through live broadcasts and a striking catalogue of award-winning recordings exclusively for the BIS label.
The Israeli violinist performs with the Berlin Philharmonic, Boston Symphony, Cleveland Orchestra, Chicago Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony, Israel Philharmonic, London Philharmonic, London Symphony, Leipzig Gewandhaus, and many others, and enjoys collaborations with today’s leading conductors, including Riccardo Chailly, Christoph von Dohnányi, Tugan Sokhiev, Sir Andrew Davis, Neeme Järvi, Michael Tilson Thomas, Semyon Bychkov, Jukka-Pekka Saraste, Paavo Järvi, and Hannu Lintu. His festival appearances include Tanglewood, Ravinia, Lockenhaus, Verbier, and the North Shore Chamber Music Festival in Chicago, which he founded with pianist Angela Yoffe.
Highlights this season include Gluzman’s debut appearance with the Royal Concertgebouw and performances with the Boston Symphony and Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra. He celebrates Leonard Bernstein’s centennial year with both the BBC and San Francisco Symphonies, and gives the European premiere of Sofia Gubaidulina’s Triple Concerto with the Tonhalle Orchestra Zürich. He plays the legendary 1690 ‘ex-Leopold Auer’ Stradivari on extended loan to him through the generosity of the Stradivari Society of Chicago.
