October 14, Saturday, 8 pm: David Geringas, internationally-acclaimed Lithuanian cellist, in Recital

Assisted by the Callisto Quartet

The program will include works by Bach, Vasks, Couperin, Corigliano, Penderecki, and Senderovas.

Lithuanian cellist David Geringas is one of the pre-eminent musicians of our time.  His playing’s intellectual rigor, stylistic versatility, flowing lyricism, and broad tonal palette have brought him praise the world over.  A pupil of Rostropovich in the ‘60s, Geringas won the Gold Medal at the 1970 Tchaikovsky Competition, which launched a stellar career that has included performances with most of the globe’s leading orchestras.   He has recorded some 100 albums, which have won numerous prizes, from the Grand Prix du Disque and the Diapason d’Or d’Année (both from France) and – twice – the ECHO Award (from Germany).  Leading composers such as Sofia Gubaidulina, Ned Rorem, Peteris Vasks, and more, have dedicated concertos to him.  He has premiered many modern Russian and Lithuanian works, and has won acclaim from his homeland for his championing of Lithuanian music and composers.   

David Geringas in recent years has rarely performed in the US, making this recital a very special event!
