Tim Fain plays Philip Glass: Partita for Solo Violin

Tim Fain Event

Violinist Tim Fain performs a special evening celebrating Orange Mountain Music's release of the world-premiere recording of Partita for Solo Violin, a new work written specifically for Fain by Philip Glass. The Partita is the central work around which their worldwide and critically acclaimed duo performances are based, and is the centerpiece of Fain’s multimedia project “Portals.” All this collaboration has created a long and powerful friendship, with Glass interested in Fain’s interpretations and Fain an advocate of Glass’s music—as a soloist for both Glass violin concertos, as well as for his Double Concerto for Violin & Cello, which he also recorded.

A celebration of Fain’s dedication to Glass and his music, the recording also features solo violin music from Einstein on the Beach, the interludes from the Second Violin Concerto, and the solo violin music from Book of Longing, the piece in from which the Glass/Fain collaboration evolved.

Tuesday, May 5, 8pm
Tickets $12

This performance is made possible with endowment support from Mary Flagler Cary Charitable Trust; annual grants from The Amphion Foundation, Inc., The Aaron Copland Fund for Music, and The Fan Fox and Leslie R. Samuels Foundation; and in part by public funds from New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
