Johnny Gandelsman Violin Master Class
5:30 pm to 7:00 pm EST
Johnny Gandelsman will coach UVMC violin students. This event is free and open to observers. Come watch a master teacher in action!
Organized in partnership with Lebanon Opera House, in conjunction with Gandelsman’s February 7 performance.
What happens in a master class?
Three violin students will perform a solo piece they have been preparing with their teacher. After each performance, Johnny will coach the students on their interpretation of the music and their violin technique. A master class is like a demonstration of a lesson. Audience members get to hear the student perform and to observe how a master teacher coaches advanced students. It’s a great chance to gain insight into the process of preparing for performance and interpreting repertoire.
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.
As a founding member of Brooklyn Rider and a member of the Silkroad Ensemble, Johnny has closely worked with such luminaries as Bela Fleck, Martin Hayes, Kayhan Kalhor, Yo-Yo Ma, Mark Morris, Anne Sofie Van Otter, Alim Qasimov & Fargana Qasimova, Joshua Redman, Suzanne Vega, Abigail Washburn and Damian Woetzel. He has appeared with Bono, David Byrne, Renee Fleming, Rhiannon Giddens, I’m With Her, Christian McBride, and many others.
