We welcome you to join us in a season featuring Beethoven at every concert, in commemoration of the 250th anniversary of his birth.
Program for both concerts: Beethoven’s Overture to “King Stephan,” Sibelius’ “Swan of Tuonela” with English Horn soloist Ron Fox, Kabalevsky’s light-hearted “The Comedians,” and the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto, with New York based violin soloist Anat Almani.
Anat Almani was named “one of the gifted young violinists who are among the vanguard leading the march of violin art into the 21st Century” by Henry Roth, in his book entitled Violin Virtuosos from Paganini to the 21st Century.
And, guess what? Anat was a soloist with our TICO Orchestra over 30 years ago, when she was 10 years old!
She has moved on, having her first world tour that year, playing solos in Norway (conducted by our own David Amos), Mexico, and the United States. She made her Carnegie Hall debut at the age of 16. This was followed by solo performances in Argentina, Colombia, France, Holland Israel, Italy, Uruguay, South Korea, and the United Kingdom.
She teaches at the Manhattan School of Music Pre-College Division since 2001, and she is an artist-faculty member of the Academy of Music Festival. Her younger sister, Bracha Malkin, is a contracted violinist with the Boston Symphony.
For her two San Diego performances, as listed above, Anat will play one of the most beloved and difficult of all violin concertos, Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto in D Major.
Tickets for the January 28 concert may be purchased online, at the door, or by calling the synagogue office at 619 697-6001.
