2018-2019 CLASSICAL WORLD ARTISTS SEASON

Leila Josefowicz, violin
with John Novacek, piano
Wednesday, November 14, 2018 at 7:30 pm

“Highly imaginative curation; musicality in every note; and a winning ability to communicate” are just a few critical reactions for Canadian-American violinist Leila Josefowicz’s recent recital at Wigmore Hall. Along with her critically acclaimed musical collaborator, pianist John Novacek, she will set Perimeter’s theatre alight.

David Fray, piano
Wednesday, February 20, 2019, at 7:30 pm

After being named “Newcomer of the Year” in 2008 by BBC Music Magazine, French pianist David Fray has embarked on an active career as a recitalist, soloist, and chamber musician worldwide. In his most recent CD of Chopin works, David Fray is “fluid and shimmering.” With his natural elegance and exquisite musicality, Fray’s eloquent performance will make for an intoxicating evening of piano virtuosity.

 

Jonathan Roozeman, cello
with Jan-Paul Roozeman, piano
Thursday, March 28, 2019, at 7:30 pm

Finnish-Dutch cellist Jonathan Roozeman is already establishing himself as a cellist of exceptional musical integrity. At the age of 17, Jonathan won the 2015 Tchaikovsky Competition, making him the youngest prize-winner ever. From there, he has played with the world’s most renowned orchestras and conductors. Perimeter is extremely proud to have this young talent and his pianist brother grace our stage.

SCHOLA ANTIQUA OF CHICAGO
WITH SPECIAL GUESTS - NELL SNAIDAS, Soprano AND AMRO HELMY, oud player
TUESDAY, MAY 7, 2019, AT 7:30 PM

A lone voice echoes through Perimeter’s four-storey glass Atrium. It is the Adhan, the traditional rendition of the Muslim call to prayer, but here it is calling us to experience the sounds of medieval Jerusalem. Featuring Islamic chants, Christian chants in Georgian and Armenian, and a set of Sephardic songs, Schola Antiqua’s unique choral program uses music to erase the boundaries that divide us.

“Without narrative – and starting with an overlapping call of sacred sounds as might be heard in some hours at the Dung Gate, or Aleppo of a former decade, or in cities of North Africa, or Mumbai – we introduce some memories preserved in oral or written tradition from the peoples who inhabited or moved through medieval Jerusalem.” – Matthew Dean, Sounds of Jerusalem curator
