About The Event
"Transparent, lucid readings ... countless interpretive shadings." -New York Times
Acclaimed violinist Gregory Fulkerson has gained an international reputation as a virtuoso performer with a zest for exciting repertoire both old and new. It was as a major exponent of American contemporary repertoire that Fulkerson rose to prominence, winning First Prize in the International American Music Competition sponsored by the Rockefeller Foundation and the Kennedy Center. He has since gone on to perform more than 30 concerti with orchestra, under conductors including Riccardo Muti, Robert Spano, Marin Alsop and others. Fulkerson's recording of the JS Bach complete sonatas and partitas for solo violin was hailed by the New Yorker as one of the Best CDs of 2000. His performance of this monumental set of solo works in the museum's galleries is a solo tour de force, split over two evenings.
