Encounter IV

Towards the Age of Expression
Led by Ray Iwazumi

A generation of virtuosi in the second half of the nineteenth century, led by Wieniawski and Vieuxtemps, opened the eyes and ears of the public to a new realm of expressive potential and artistic projection for the violin. Transcendental technique in the service of art then reached its height with the great Belgian violinist Eugène Ysaÿe, who inspired a new generation of virtuosi led by Kreisler, Elman, Heifetz, and many others. At this summer’s fourth Encounter, violinist and Juilliard School professor Ray Iwazumi explores the flowering of expression of the violin during this consequential period in Western music history.
