Quotes & Highlights
“Fain’s tone is dark yet athletic; he plays a mean violin…” —The New York Times
It’s a rare treat to experience a Philip Glass premiere, especially as performed by rising star violinist Tim Fain. This multi-media evening features Glass’s new Partita for Solo Violin, pianist Nicholas Britell, a film choreographed and directed by Black Swan’s Benjamin Millepied, the music of Pulitzer Prize-winners Aaron Jay Kernis and William Bolcom, Nico Muhly, Kevin Puts, Lev Zhurbin, and the genre-bending Laura Karpman, all interwoven with films by Kate Hackett and the words of Leonard Cohen.
