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.

Quotes & Highlights
The San Francisco Scottish Fiddlers formed in 1986 to play traditional Scottish fiddle music. Members meet the third Sunday of each month in homes around the San Francisco Bay area, drawn together by their strong sense of community and delight in sharing the music they love.
Guided by their director, noted fiddler Alasdair Fraser, they draw their repertoire from the rich and enduring Scottish musical tradition. They play contemporary tunes as well as those that have been passed down from the Highlands and Western Isles, the northeast of Scotland, and Shetland. Many tunes also come from the great Scottish fiddling tradition that flourishes in Cape Breton Island off the northeast coast of Canada.
