The recital features the world premieres of two newly written major works by renowned California-based composers GABRIELA LENA FRANK and ANDREW MCINTOSH.

Virtuoso violinist MOVSES POGOSSIAN presents a recital of works from a recording project that is currently underway. When completed, the CD, Inspired by Bach, will be released on New Focus Recordings.

About UCLA Professor of Violin MOVSES POGOSSIAN, Los Angeles Times' music critic Mark Swed has written, "But first some praise for Pogossian, who is a terrific violinist. He has the flair and the huge technique of a Romantic-era specialist, a virtuosity and magnetism that he applies to newer music."... "one of the finest violinists in Los Angeles."... "a sophisticated virtuoso, subtle and bold in his phrasing." ... "violinist Movses Pogossian ... played with an uncannily eerie tone splendidly gauged for shocking irony."

MOVSES POGOSSIAN is a Prizewinner of the 1986 Tchaikovsky International Competition and the youngest-ever First Prize winner of the 1985 USSR National Violin Competition, previous winners of which included DAVID OISTRAKH and GIDON KREMER. Movses Pogossian made his American debut performing the Tchaikovsky Concerto with the Boston Pops at Symphony Hall in 1990, about which RICHARD DYER of the Boston Globe wrote, "There is freedom in his playing, but also taste and discipline. It was a fiery, centered, and highly musical performance ..." Movses Pogossian has since performed with leading orchestras worldwide and collaborates with some of the worlds most renowned artists. Movses Pogossian is the Artistic Director of the critically acclaimed Dilijan Chamber Music Series, which performs at Zipper Hall in downtown Los Angeles. Read about Movses Pogossian by clicking:
