Shlomo Mintz, violin; Bruno Canino, piano
IIMF’s Outstanding Guest Artist Series is proud to announce the participation of Israeli virtuoso Shlomo Mintz in 2017’s first session in Acqui Terme, Italy. On July 9th, 2017, Mintz will join Guest Artist Bruno Canino (piano) and festival founder Misha Quint (cello) for a concert of chamber music. The program includes Rachmaninoff’s heart-breaking Trio élégiaque, Kodály’s epic Duo for Violin and Cello, and Tchaikovsky’s tragic Piano Trio. Shlomo Mintz is one of the world’s truly great violinists. A student of Ilona Feher, he made his orchestral debut in Israel at the age of 11 and, under the patronage of his mentor, Isaac Stern, had his debut in Carnegie Hall five years later. Since then he has become an internationally sought after performer, collaborating with such giants as Pablo Casals, Eugene Ormandy, Claudio Abbado, Lorin Maazel and Mistislav Rosptropovich. Shlomo Mintz will give a violin master class.
The series takes off on July 6th, 2017 in IIMF’s new location, Acqui Terme, Italy, where celebrated Italian pianist Bruno Canino will join director Misha Quint for a grand opening concert. Quint and Canino will perform a selection of the greatest works for cello and piano: Beethoven’s foundational Cello Sonata No. 3, Schubert’s heart-breaking Arpeggione, Stravinsky’s neo-classical masterpiece, the Suite Italienne, and Tchaikovsky’s final work for cello: the Pezzo capriccioso. Bruno Canino will give a piano master class.
