BANK OF AMERICA CHAMBER MUSIC

Sponsored by: Bank of America

Venue: Dock Street Theatre

Duration: Approximately 1 hour, 15 minutes

Overview

Directed and hosted by Geoff Nuttall

Spectacularly skilled musicians and brilliantly crafted programs are only part of the secret to success at Bank of America Chamber Music—the series is set apart by the unmatched stage chemistry and rollicking good time these musicians have as they play together. Director and violinist Geoff Nuttall’s signature wit and joie de vivre mark each of the 11 revelatory programs—each performed three times—whether he is playing with his St. Lawrence String Quartet, or acting as emcee for his friends. Returning favorites this season include countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo, whose introduction on this series in 2016 was a tremendous success; percussionist Steven Schick—a “solo percussion knockout” (ArtsATL) last heard at the Festival in 2013; as well as oboist James Austin Smith, violinist Livia Sohn, and pianists Pedja Muzijevic and Stephen Prutsman (see p 8), among others. They are joined by several newcomers, including composer-in-residence Jaroslaw Kapuscinski, whose inventive creations feature musical instruments used to control multimedia content; composer/cellist Joshua Roman, whose versatility and adventurous spirit have gained international attention; Swiss-born Gilles Vonsattel, an “immensely talented pianist” who plays “with intelligence and imagination” (The New York Times); and the Rolston String Quartet, a young Canadian ensemble that won the 2016 Banff International String Quartet Competition. This series is simply not to be missed.
