Russian-Swedish violinist, musicologist, author, and educator, Mikhail Kazinik possesses an incredible gift of insight where creative genius is concerned. A charismatic storyteller, he captivates his audiences with a thought-provoking and inspiring excursion into the world of music, art, and the history of human creativity. This May, joined on stage by the Bay Area finest musicians, maestro Kazinik brings to you two different programs with a common thread: influence of Jewish folklore in classical music. Special features: the art of Mark Chagall in Part I and The World of Klezmer - authentic performances - in Part II.
