Bay Chamber Concerts presents Benjamin Beilman on violin and Pedja Mužijević on piano live at the Rockport Opera House on Saturday, November 20, at 7 p.m.
“An elegant and tender program that includes Bach’s Violin Sonata in C Minor BMW 1017 at Saint-Saen’s Violin Sonata No. 1 in D Minor, it promises to be an evening to remember,” said Bay Chambers, in a news release.
Born in 1989, Benjamin Beilman is winning plaudits across the globe for his compelling and impassioned performances, his deep rich tone and searing lyricism. The Scotsman described him as "a remarkable talent, delivering playing of rare insight and generosity, as captivating as it is gloriously entertaining”, and The New York Times has praised his "handsome technique, burnished sound, and quiet confidence [which] showed why he has come so far so fast."
Hailed by critics as a “thinking” musician with engaging stage presence and a gratifying combination of virtuosity and eloquence, pianist Pedja Mužijević has defined his career with creative programming, unusual combinations of new and old music and lasting collaborations with other artists and ensembles. The Financial Times describes him as “a virtuoso with formidable fingers and a musician with fiercely original ideas about the music he plays.” In addition to a busy touring schedule, Pedja is Director of Music Programming at the Baryshnikov Center in New York and Artistic Advisor at Montana’s Tippet Rise.
