Internationally acclaimed violinist James Oliver Buswell, renowned for his recordings of the complete sonatas and partitas for solo violin by J.S. Bach and for his programming of music “off the beaten path”, will present a selection of Bach Partitas and Sonatas coupled with unaccompanied works by Ysaye and others, plus the highly praised violin/cello duo by Maurice Ravel with cellist Tobias Werner.
James Buswell has performed as a solo violinist with virtually all of the major orchestras in North America, and throughout Europe, Asia, South America, and Australia, performing over one hundred solo works for violin and orchestra. Early in his career he was an artist-member of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center in New York. Active as a concerto soloist, chamber musician, recitalist, conductor and educator, James Buswell is one of the most versatile musicians performing today. More+
