Gesher Music Festival - MATT HAIMOVITZ
"An expressive maximalist, Matt Haimovitz calls forth a dazzling spectrum of sounds from the depths of his instrument" -The New Yorker. He electrifies listeners from a few feet away in an intimate club to the last rows of a concert hall. The sound of the solo cello is as compelling and eloquent as the human voice, with a chameleon's ability to embody any role.
When not headlining with major orchestras throughout the world, this fearless performer makes the solo recital his trademark. The San Francisco Chronicle notes that Haimovitz "has been busily reinventing the classical recital for the new millennium." In tours throughout the U.S., Canada, and Europe, Haimovitz has brought the sounds of Bach, Ligeti, Britten, Golijov, Reger, Carter, Kodaly, Machover, Dutilleux, Spratlan as well as his own arrangement of Jimi Hendrix's "Star-Spangled Banner," to concert halls and listening rooms alike. Anchoring the concert with one of the spectacular Bach Suites, Haimovitz engages the audience, introducing his program from the stage, creating unexpected epiphanies and fostering a new intimacy with the music.
