Piatigorsky Concert: Violist Marcus Thompson
Friday, January 11, 2019
The Piatigorsky Foundation is dedicated to making live classical music an integral part of everyday life for communities throughout the United States. This concert is free and open to the public. The audience is invited to stay and meet the artists after the concert, which is sponsored by The Mount Dora Library Association.
This year's world-class artist is Violist Marcus Thompson, with piano accompanist Doris Stevenson. A brilliant violist who has been heralded for “major mastery of his instrument” and called “the complete interpreter,” Marcus Thompson is indeed a remarkable violist.
Since his exciting and heralded New York debut at Carnegie Hall in 1968, Mr. Thompson has continued to delight audiences with his wide breadth of repertoire spanning four centuries on both the viola and viola d’amore as concert soloist, recitalist, and in chamber music.
This concert is free and is sponsored by the Mount Dora Library Association.
