Winner of a 2009 Avery Fisher Career Grant, violinist Arnaud Sussmann has distinguished himself with his unique sound, bravura, and profound musicianship. Minnesota’s Pioneer Press writes, “Sussmann has an old-school sound…a rare combination of sweet and smooth that can hypnotize a listener.” Sussmann will perform Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 4 and Chausson’s Concerto in D Major for Violin, Piano, and String Quartet. For this concert he is joined by flutists Sooyun Kim and Tara Helen O’Connor; violinists Bella Hristova, Francisco Fullana, Kristin Lee, and Yura Lee; violist Richard O’Neill; cellists Dmitri Atapine and Nicholas Canellakis; double bassist Xavier Foley; pianist Wu Han; and piano-harpsichordist Hyeyeon Park.
This concert comes to us from the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. CMS has developed a new digital initiative enabling local venues to present CMS: FRONT ROW, a series of exceptionally high quality, digital chamber music concerts. Middlebury is one of the national broadcast sponsors of the series, featuring beautifully shot, full-length HD performance videos from the CMS archive with remarks and Q&A sessions with the artists. Featuring multiple artists who’ve become dear to our campus audiences, the series is curated by CMS co-artistic directors and Performing Arts Series friends, cellist David Finckel and pianist Wu Han. This series will sustain audiences and provide a new way to experience this beautiful art form from the virtual “front row” in the comfort and safety of listeners’ homes.
Middlebury’s CMS: FRONT ROW broadcasts are part of the Nelson Fund series, and are made possible with generous support from Raphael and Jane Bernstein.
