Grammy-winning guitarist Jason Vieaux premieres Dan Visconti's new concerto
'Living Language' with the California Symphony. Strong praise follows:|
"Vieaux, for whom the piece was written, played with
terrific commitment, coaxing a wealth of sound from his amplified, nylon string
guitar. The Grammy-winning artist brought fluidity to the score's fleet
passagework and focus to the slow, reflective episodes." [San Jose Mercury
"His excellent performance throughout was most remarkable here. Each firmly
resonant note passed through three or four pitches and as many tone colors
before fading away." "Visconti was aiming for a tour of world music. Yet the
concerto remained gentle, hushed, and transparent throughout, even while many
were playing. Visconti’s skill at orchestration keeping it so was admirable.
This concerto sounded quite unlike other modern guitar concertos by Rodrigo or
others, yet it was, like their work, consonant, pleasurable, and satisfying."
[San Francisco Classical Voice]

Acclaimed violinist Mark Kaplan's much anticipated 2-CD
set of complete solo Bach is released on the Bridge
Praise for Kaplan's "extraordinary lyricism" quickly followed. "It
is as if every note, every phrase of these monumental works has something to say
to Kaplan and, in turn, he has something to say to you about them." [ArtMusicLounge] Kaplan, who plays a 1685 Stradivarius, is sought after for his Bach
performances and lectures at venues as diverse as Indiana
University, UCLA, New York’s Bargemusic, Oxford University and the Philharmonie in
Cologne. Kaplan enjoys a wide and varied career
as a soloist, chamber musician and distinguished educator. He has performed with
nearly every major orchestra in the principal cities of Europe, North America,
the Far East and Australia. He tours worldwide and records with the
Weiss-Kaplan-Stumpf Trio, exploring the masterworks of the piano trio repertoire
as well as new works by Lera Auerbach, Fred Lerdahl and others. Kaplan’s
previous recordings include violin concerti of Paganini, Wieniawski, Bartok,
Dohnanyi, Nono, Lalo, Berg and Stravinsky with such esteemed ensembles as the
London Symphony and the Budapest Festival Orchestra.
Award-winning pianist Yael Weiss joined the Israel
Camerata and conductor Uriel Segal for the world premiere of the new
re-orchestration of Grieg’s piano concerto. Enthusiastic audiences in Tel Aviv,
Rehovot and Savion greeted Mordechai Rechtman's orchestration and hailed Weiss'
driving performances. Israel's premiere daily press,
Ha’aretz, Israel, has offered high praise:
“A display of superb musicianship”. The concerto tour
followed Yael Weiss's performances of the Beethoven piano trio cycle with her
ensemble, the Weiss-Kaplan-Stumpf Trio, over five concerts in Tel Aviv
and Naan. Ms. Weiss continues her Beethoven focus with performances of the
complete cycle of Beethoven's 32 piano sonatas, and gives lectures on Beethoven
