Universally recognized among today’s top performing artists, Vadim Gluzman ( vadimgluzman.com ) brings to life the glorious violinistic tradition of the 19th and 20th centuries. Gluzman’s wide repertoire embraces new music and his performances are heard around the world through live broadcasts and a striking catalogue of award-winning recordings exclusively for the BIS label.
The Israeli violinist has appeared with the Berlin Philharmonic, Boston Symphony, Orchestre de Paris, Leipzig Gewandhaus, Israel Philharmonic, London Symphony, Royal Concertgebouw and many others. He collaborates with leading conductors including Riccardo Chailly, Christoph von Dohnányi, Tugan Sokhiev, Sir Andrew Davis, Neeme Järvi, Michael Tilson Thomas, Semyon Bychkov and Hannu Lintu. Festival appearances include performances at Ravinia, Tanglewood, Verbier, and the North Shore Chamber Music Festival in Chicago, founded by Gluzman and pianist Angela Yoffe, his wife and recital partner.
Highlights of the current season include performances with the Orchestre de Paris, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, St. Petersburg Philharmonic, Detroit Symphony and the ProMusica Chamber Orchestra in Ohio, where he serves as its Creative Partner and Principal Guest Artist. He gives world premiere of Erkki-Sven Tüür’s concerto with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony, Moritz Eggert’s “Mir mit Dir” at the Kronberg Academy Festival, and UK premiere of Sofia Gubaidulina’s Triple Concerto with BBC Philharmonic.
Distinguished Artist in Residence at the Peabody Conservatory, Gluzman performs on the legendary 1690 ‘ex-Leopold Auer’ Stradivari, on extended loan to him through the generosity of the Stradivari Society of Chicago.
American Bass-Baritone Timothy Jones ( www.singjones.com )enjoys a reputation as a charismatic presence on operatic and concert stages throughout the United States, Europe and South America. The Boston Globe hailed his voice as "stentorian and honeyed" and the Chicago Tribune called his "complete connection with the text extraordinary."
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review praised him for his theatricality, noting that he "relished the dramatic possibilities of the songs' text and music." His eagerly anticipated performances combine intelligent musicianship, commanding vocal technique and a unique ability to connect with audiences.
Highlights of the 2016-2017 season include performances with Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble, Ars Lyrica Houston, University of Houston Brahms Festival, and Houston River Oaks Chamber Orchestra.
Since its founding in 1994, Olmos Ensemble ( www.olmosensemble.com )has established itself as one of the premier chamber music organizations in Texas and is increasingly gaining national recognition through its world class performances, live broadcasts and recordings. Comprised of first chair players from the San Antonio Symphony and supplemented by leading musicians from across the United States, Olmos Ensemble’s programming has won plaudits for its innovative programming, showcasing neglected works by female composers, forgotten Baroque gems, and challenging contemporary pieces alongside insightful interpretations of standard chamber repertoire from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries.
In addition to an annual Summer Concert Series in August and their four-program Regular Concert Series throughout the year, Olmos Ensemble is regularly featured in broadcast performances on Texas Public Radio and American Public Media’s Performance Today. Olmos Ensemble 2020-21 collaborators include internationally acclaimed artists Vadim Gluzman, John Novacek, Jeffrey Kahane, and Jon Nakamatsu.
