July 28, 2018: Brahms in the Spotlight


Sponsored in part by The Ludwig Family.

TimFaincropped_webThe Orchestra Series concludes tonight, featuring the Egmont Overture by Beethoven, Franz Liszt’s Les Préludes and Verdi’s Overture to Nabucco. The evening will include a special performance by violinist Tim Fain on Brahms’ Violin Concerto.

Tim Fain has been a favorite at SummerFest since 2014. He worked closely with composer Nicholas Britell on the 2017 Oscar and Golden Globe-winning film Moonlight, performing and recording the score, which received much critical acclaim. In March 2017, he performed the live film score to a sold-out audience during a special screening of the film in Los Angeles. Tim performed Resonance in a virtual reality music video in collaboration with Google. His latest CD, First Loves, was released in September 2015 and is a 2-disc set featuring some of the works that first inspired him, as a child, to become a violinist.

His multimedia evening, Portals, premiered to sold-out audiences in New York, Los Angeles, Australia’s Melbourne Festival and Le Lieu Unique in France. The centerpiece of the presentation is Partita for Solo Violin, a work written especially for him by Philip Glass.

A native of Santa Monica, California, Tim Fain is a graduate of The Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, where he studied with Victor Danchenko; and The Juilliard School, where he worked with Robert Mann. Launching his career with Young Concert Artists and an Avery Fisher Career Grant, he went on to electrify audiences at debuts with the Baltimore Symphony with conductor Marin Alsop, at Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival and with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s. He has also appeared with the Mexico City, Tucson, Oxford (UK), and Cincinnati Chamber symphonies; Brooklyn, Buffalo and Hague philharmonics; the National Orchestra of Spain; and the Curtis Symphony Orchestra in a special performance at Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center.
