Ottawa Chamberfest | Guitarist Jason Vieaux: Morning
July 30 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
One event on July 30, 2023 at 12:00 pm
Legendary Grammy-winner Jason Vieaux is “among the elite of today’s classical guitarists” (Gramophone) and is perhaps “the most precise and soulful classical guitarist of his generation” (NPR). From New York’s Lincoln Center to Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw and the Seoul Arts Center, Jason Vieaux has cemented his reputation as an artist of brilliance and uncompromised mastery. Cited for his “eloquent and vibrant performances” on disc (Gramophone Magazine) he is hailed as “virtuosic, flamboyant, dashing and, sometimes ineffably lyrical” (New York Times) on stage.
Sought-after for his extensive concerto repertoire, Vieaux tours regularly and performs with a long list of orchestras. Vieaux enjoys ongoing collaborations with the Escher String Quartet, mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke, violinist Anne Akiko Meyers, harpist Yolanda Kondonassis, accordion/bandoneon virtuoso Julien Labro, and saxophone virtuoso Timothy McAllister. Vieaux recorded Pat Metheny’s “Four Paths of Light” for Metheny’s 2021 album “Road to the Sun” (a song Metheny dedicated to Vieaux). Vieaux will be performing movements 1 and 2 from “Four Paths…” along with some Scarlatti, Bach, Agustin Barrios, Jorge Morel, Fernando Bustamante, and a piece by Vieaux called “Home.” His extensive discography includes “Bach Volume 2: Works for Violin,” released on Azica in 2022 to rave reviews, and won the 2014 Best Instrumental Classical Solo Grammy Award for “Play.”
