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.

Watch video of Angela Au performing.
Piano virtuoso Angela Au astonishes audiences at every concert with her incredible musical gift. Au began piano lessons at the age of six. After just nine months, she won her first prize, a grand championship, and then went on to break all records by winning over a dozen championships, including China’s first nationally-televised 1984 Pearl River Prize: Guangzhou – Hong Kong – Macau Piano Invitation Competition. In 1986, Angela made her debut as Hong Kong’s youngest-ever soloist in a piano recital sponsored by the German Consulate General. She was chosen to play for Queen Elizabeth II to honor the Royal visit to Hong Kong. In 1987, she became the first Hong Kong-born pianist admitted to the Curtis Institute of Music, studying with Gary Graffman and Eleanor Sokoloff. On completion of her musical studies at Curtis, Au then earned her degree in economics at Harvard.
