About the Soloist and Composer
Russian-born, Juilliard-trained violinist Philippe Quint has carved an unconventional path with his impassioned musical desire for reimagining traditional works, rediscovering neglected repertoire and commissioning new works. He shares his Grammy-nominated interpretation of the Korngold Violin Concerto, which was premiered in 1947 by none other than Jascha Heifetz!
Internationally active as a composer, Paul Dresher is noted for his ability to integrate diverse musical influences into his own coherent and uniquely personal style. His many forms of musical expression include experimental opera, live instrumental electro-acoustic music performances and scores for theater, dance and film.
