Dubbed "the Chagall of violinists" by The Jerusalem Post, Belgian soloist and conductor Michael Guttman leads Symphony Napa Valley on an exploration of The Art of the Violin in this matinee concert. Guttman and the orchestra start off with a pair of pieces by romanticist Felix Mendelssohn before launching into a Mozart divertimento and two works by Belgian countrymen Henri Vieuxtemps and Eugène Ysaÿe, before wrapping up this eclectic show with tango master Ástor Piazolla. In fact, Guttman leads his own tango quartet, along with serving as the principal guest conductor of the Brussels Chamber Orchestra, the leader of the acclaimed Arriaga Quartet and the founder and artistic director of the highly-regarded Tuscan music festival known as Pietrasanta in Concerto.
