Beginner's Ear: Nature and Music at Teatown

By Teatown (other events)

Sunday, June 26 2022 11:00 AM 12:30 PM EDT

Due to unforeseen circumstances, George Meyer will be unable to perform.

Johnny Gandelsman will step in, and perform his arrangement of the Bach cello suites for violin, and two contemporary works by Tomeka Reid and Christina Courtin.

The son of a musical family from Moscow, by way of Israel, violinist, composer, and producer Johnny Gandelsman combines his classical training with a restless desire to reach beyond the concert hall in exploring contemporary music. As a concert soloist and a founding member of the quartet Brooklyn Rider, Gandelsman has premiered dozens of new works and has released albums by The Knights, the Silkroad Ensemble, Brooklyn Rider, and others on his label, In a Circle Records.

His cello suite project has been praised by the New York Times.
