KSO presents Gabriel Lefkowitz and Friends

CROSSVILLE — The Knoxville Symphony Orchestra Concertmaster Series presents Gabriel Lefkowitz & Friends on Jan. 16 and 17. This is the second concert in the brand new series, which consists of three sets of performances, in October 2012, January and March 2013. The KSO Concertmaster Series is sponsored by American Piano Gallery and Merchant & Gould. The two performances will take place at Remedy Coffee House on Jan. 16 and 17 at 7 p.m.

25 year-old KSO Concertmaster Gabriel Lefkowitz has been with the KSO for two seasons. He holds a Bachelors degree from Columbia University, where he graduated magna cum laude in three years and a Masters in Violin Performance from The Juilliard School, where he studied with Joel Smirnoff and Masao Kawasaki. 

Lefkowitz will perform Bach’s Sonata No. 3 in E Major – Prelude and Ysaye’s Sonata No. 2 – “Obsession.” Lefkowitz will be joined by his KSO colleagues Gordon Tsai, violin; Kathryn Gawne, viola; and Andy Bryenton, cello; as well as pianist Kevin Class for Dvorak’s Piano Quintet.

“I am delighted to present the music of J.S. Bach, Eugene Ysaye, and Antonin Dvorak,” says KSO Concertmaster Gabriel Lefkowitz. “There's a wonderful emotional arc to this program. Bach's music for solo violin is so pure and perfect in its harmonic and structural language that it often seems angelic. The Prelude from the Partita in E Major in Ysaye's Sonata No. 2 "Obsession,” is where the theme becomes something demonic, macabre, and insane. Dvorak’s Quintet No. 2 in A Major brings us out of the darkness and onto sunny pastures for a cheerful work full of the catchy, hummable melodies for which the composer is famous.”

Reserved general admission seating is sold out for both concerts. Overflow seating is available for $10 per person. Call 291-3310 for details. More info can be found at www.knoxvillesymphony.com.

Remedy Coffee House is at 125 W. Jackson Avenue in the Old City and provides an intimate 90-seat recital hall. This series is a unique way to experience exquisite music in a comfortable, coffee-house setting where patrons can get “up close and personal” with the music.

  • Conlee Color HI.jpg Conlee to perform at Palace

    John Conlee is a lot like the songs of which he sings. He lives a domestic life with his wife Gale and three children, Rebecca, Jessica and Johnny. During the past two decades, Conlee has achieved a level of success that he has sustained by simply being himself and by making records that the listening public can relate to. He is a gifted entertainer, but he’s not into the glitz and hype of the entertainment world. He’d rather spend his “off the road” time working on his 32 acre farm outside of Nashville or engaging in his woodworking and gunsmithing hobbies.
