The combination of youthful vigour, old-world wisdom and dazzling technique have led critics to compare American violin virtuoso Stefan Jackiw to a young Isaac Stern. His solo performance of Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto with the YouTube Symphony Orchestra at Sydney Opera House was watched live online by more than 30 million people worldwide. Now this exciting artist joins the ACO in a program powered by musical prodigies.
Sydney Morning Herald
'an earnest, breathless and strikingly accomplished performance of Mendelssohn's
Violin Concerto in an arrangement by Richard Tognetti. Jackiw's sound is
lean and transparent, and characterised by brilliance and refined colour'
‘The performers were superb: their swift speeds, sensitive phrasing and astute contrasts in mood, tempo and dynamics captured the concerto’s balance of energy, drama and lyricism.’
