"She is the great violinist who not only can, but who dares."– Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times

Firebrand Moldovan violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja returns by popular demand following her standout West Coast recital debut last season. A megawatt star, "Kopatchinskaja now inhabits this realm of startling musical innovation with an absolute conviction that’s thrilling to behold" (Santa Barbara Independent). She and her frequent collaborator cellist Jay Campbell – praised by The New York Times for his "electrifying performances" which "conveyed every nuance" - have been credited for reviving the art of the string duo. Their diverse program spans a millennium, from 11th century traditional music to the world premiere of a new piece commissioned by A&L.
