PCMS Presents Vionlisit Stefan Jackiw ('07) 

The Philadelphia Chamber Music Society invites Harvard Club members to hear the Stefan Jackiw (AB '07), violin, and Anna Polansk, piano,  perform at the Kimmel Center's Perelman Theater on Sunday, November 12th, 3pm.

After Stefan Jackiw’s Kimmel Center recital debut in the fall of 2015 with Jeremy Denk in a magnificent evening of all four Ives violin sonatas, PCMS audiences pleaded that we bring back this über-talented artist as soon as possible. The Avery Fisher Career Grant recipient’s second appearance on the Perelman Theater stage also spotlights the stunningly-talented pianist Anna Polonsky in a program featuring a Philadelphia premiere by Boston native David Fulmer, as well as two of the Brahms violin sonatas - extraordinary masterpieces that occupy their own rarefied worlds of elegant construction, romantic sweep, and exquisite beauty.


Violinist Stefan Jackiw is recognized as one of his generation’s most significant artists, captivating audiences with playing that combines poetry and purity with an impeccable technique. Hailed for playing of "uncommon musical substance" that is “striking for its intelligence and sensitivity” (Boston Globe), Jackiw has appeared as soloist with the Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, New York, Philadelphia, and San Francisco symphony orchestras, among others.


Pianist Anna Polonsky is widely in demand as a soloist and chamber musician. She has appeared with the Moscow Virtuosi, the Buffalo Philharmonic, the Columbus Symphony Orchestra, the Memphis Symphony, the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, the St. Luke's Chamber Ensemble, and many others. Ms. Polonsky has collaborated with the Guarneri, Orion, and Shanghai Quartets, and with such.
