Russian-born Israeli violin virtuoso Maxim Vengerov returns to Berkeley for the first time in more than 15 years in a recital sparkling with expressive warmth and interpretive brilliance. The program showcases Vengerov’s fluid mastery in repertoire that ranges from Beethoven’s grand Kreutzer Sonata, to two elegant violin works by Tchaikovsky, to an instrumental arrangement of Shostakovich’s intimate song cycle From Jewish Folk Poetry. “His technical wizardry is accompanied by a big dose of heart. There’s nothing cerebral about his approach; rather, he seems instinctively to understand what makes the music go” (The Washington Post).

This performance is made possible, in part, by Taube Philanthropies. Support for the presentation of Israeli artists is provided by The Sir Jack Lyons Charitable Trust.

Run time for this concert is approximately 2 hours, including intermission, but not including any possible encores.
