Fortas Chamber Music Concerts: Leila Josefowicz in Recital

Renowned violinist and new music advocate Leila Josefowicz makes her exciting Fortas debut with an evening filled with ravishing compositions and exalted sound. As an Avery Fisher Prize winner and MacArthur Fellow, Leila has been making waves in the music world, especially in light of her enthusiasm for contemporary works for violin. Frequent collaborator John Novacek joins her for a program that truly shows the range of musical emotion, from one of Sergei Prokofiev's darkest and most brooding works, to an ethereal and lively contemporary work by Kaija Saariaho.
