“A player of rare expressive energy and disarming informality, of whimsy and theatrical ambition.” The New York Times

Powerhouse violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja, who served as last year's Artistic Director for the Ojai Music Festival makes her California recital debut with pianist Polina Leschenko. The clever program of mostly French works by Poulenc, Ravel, Enenscu and Bartók follows the release of their album Deux, “a properly exciting, life affirming box of delights” (Gramophone). “In another life, Patricia Kopatchinskaja might have been a rock star,” wrote The Financial Times following a recent, much-fêted recital at Wigmore Hall. “This is a violinist who loves taking risks… But the final reward is worth waiting for: a denouement of astonishing force.”

Bartók: Violin Sonata No. 2, Sz. 76
Poulenc: Sonate pour violon et piano
Enescu: Violin Sonata No. 3, op. 25
Ravel: Tzigane
