Boulder Bach Festival Old & New Dreams: Vadim Gluzman with Boulder Bach’s CORE

March 21 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm MDT

Stradivarius—up close and personal:
“It makes me run fifteen times faster, dive fifteen times deeper… When I first picked up this violin… I understood that my life had changed.”
-Vadim Gluzman

The season finale of Boulder Bach Festival occurs on J.S. Bach’s birthday and features one of the world’s most famous violin soloists, Vadim Gluzman. Performing on his Stradivarius violin, Gluzman collaborates with BBF’s CORE artists in a program that travels from Bach’s Violin Concerto in A Minor to an intimate work of the French baroque. Navigating the waters of music history, Gluzman and the CORE ensemble then present a passacaglia by Arvo Pärt, one of the most profound composers of our time, whose works “Fratres” and “Spiegel im Spiegel” were performed by BBF at The Dairy last year. Finally, the ensemble gathers, and BBF Music Director Zachary Carrettin joins Vadim Gluzman for a wild and heartfelt rendition of Bach’s much-adored Concerto for Two Violins.

In addition to a solo career in which his concerts frequently sell out all of the world’s concert halls, from Carnegie Hall to Berlin, Paris, Amsterdam, and Milan, Ukrainian-born Israeli violin virtuoso Vadim Gluzman offers a remarkable musical sensitivity and stylistic flexibility. This performance offers a view into the mind of one of the world’s greatest living violin virtuosos, in a concerto/ensemble collaboration with some of our region’s finest musical artists, Boulder Bach’s CORE ensemble.
