Schubert’s incomplete masterpiece bears out Beethoven’s deathbed decree that, “Truly in Schubert there is the divine spark,” while Sibelius’s radiant mid-period statement brings what many thought to be a tired, old form to new heights. Anthony Korf’s bold new concerto proposes that frontiers remain to be conquered.
Two-time Grammy nominated violinist Jesse Mills has performed as a soloist and chamber musician throughout the U.S. and Canada. Mills is the co-founder of the Horszowski Trio and Duo Prism, a violin-piano duo with Rieko Aizawa, which earned 1st Prize at the Zinetti International Competition in Italy in 2006. In 2010, the Third Street Music School Settlement in NYC honored him with the ‘Rising Star Award’ for musical achievement.
