Stefan Jackiw and Anna Polonsky

November 12th, 2017

Brahms: Violin Sonata in G Major, Op. 78
 
After Stefan Jackiw’s Kimmel Center recital debut in the fall of 2015 with Jeremy Denk in a magnificent evening of all four Ives violin sonatas, PCMS audiences pleaded that we bring back this über-talented artist as soon as possible. The Avery Fisher Career Grant recipient’s second appearance on the Perelman Theater stage also spotlights the stunningly-talented pianist Anna Polonsky in a program featuring a Philadelphia pre­miere by Boston native David Fulmer, as well as two of the Brahms violin sonatas—extraordinary masterpieces that occupy their own rarefied worlds of elegant construction, romantic sweep, and exquisite beauty.
