Music@Menlo Concert Program VI: The Age of Expression

August 2, 2017
7:30 pm
The Center for Performing Arts at Menlo-Atherton

The generation of virtuosi that emerged in the early twentieth century, headed by the preternaturally gifted Fritz Kreisler, charted new frontiers in the violin’s expressive potential. As the art of the violin was reimagined, so inevitably was the music written for it, as composers created music expressly for the soulful practitioners of the new style. Concert Program VI features music by Borodin, Respighi, Ysaÿe, and even Kreisler himself—works that illustrate the age of expression’s transformative effect on how composers would forever approach the instrument.
