Guitar & violin duo opens our season

NPR describes Grammy-winner Jason Vieaux as “perhaps the most precise and soulful classical guitarist of his generation.” Gramophone includes him “among the elite of today's classical guitarists.”

His solo recitals have been a featured at every major guitar series in North America and at many of the important guitar festivals in Asia, Australia, Europe, and Mexico. He has performed as concerto soloist with more than 100 orchestras, including Cleveland, Toronto, Houston, San Diego, Auckland Philharmonia, and Orchestra of St. Luke’s. 

Among his acclaimed recordings is Images of Metheny, featuring music by American jazz legend Pat Metheny. After hearing it, Metheny declared: “I am flattered to be included in Jason's musical world.”

Adam Barnett-Hart is the founding first violinist of the Escher String Quartet. As a soloist, he made his debut performing the Brahms Concerto in Alice Tully Hall with the Juilliard Symphony in 2002.

As a pair, the two stellar musicians are creating a program that will surprise and delight.
