Violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja performs at Princeton University

March 28 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Grammy award-winning violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja makes her Princeton University Concerts debut at Richardson Auditorium as part of the125th anniversary season. This wild-child of the violin, a “player of rare expressive energy and disarming informality, of whimsy and theatrical ambition,” (The New York Timeshas exploded onto the international scene in recent years with an untamable energy and a far-reaching approach to repertoire that runs from baroque and classical to commissions and reimagined modern masterpieces. With Polina Leschenko at the piano, she will explore music rooted in her Moldovan-Austrian-Swiss heritage, including sonatas by Béla Bartók, George Enescu, and Francis Poulenc as well as the Hungarian flavors of Maurice Ravel’s “Tzigane” – a piece which was, coincidentally, given its Princeton University Concerts premiere by George Enescu in 1938. At 7 p.m., Princeton University violin students, directed by performance faculty member Anna Lim, will offer a brief musical preview in tribute to Kopatchinskaja. This pre-concert event is free to all ticket-holders. 

Tickets are $10-$55, available online at princetonuniversityconcerts.org, by phone at 609-258-9220, or in person two hours prior to the concert at the Richardson Auditorium Box Office.
