Through her inventive programming, active composer collaborations, and precise yet impassioned interpretations, violinist Francesca Anderegg has earned renown as a musical explorer of the first order. “This was playing that had it all — taste, mastery, sensuality.” (Norman Lebrecht, The Arts Journal)
This season, Anderegg has a range of tours and dates, including a series of recitals with her father and original accompanist, Dr. David Anderegg. They’ll perform repertoire from her very first solo recital (at age 13), including sonatas by Kodály and Dohnányi, offering a kind of “origin story” program this month at Bennington College and at the Saco River Theatre Series.
Looking forward, Anderegg tours Brazil in March, performing the rarely-heard Camargo Guarnieri Violin Concerto No. 1 with the Orquestra Sinfônica Municipal de Campinas under the baton of Maestro Victor Hugo Toro. (Click here to peruse Francesca’s concerto offerings for coming seasons.) She also performs chamber music in Brasilia and Porto Alegre, and leads master classes at the Universidade de Brasilia, EMESP Tom Jobim, the Instituto de Artes da UNESP, and Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul.
Earlier this season, Anderegg and her husband, the composer Reinaldo Moya, offered their special collaborative program, Contemporary Voices from Latin America with pianist Esther Wang at the University of Wisconsin–Green Bay.
In Contemporary Voices from Latin America, Anderegg and Moya work together to offer audiences a survey of contemporary music from Latin American composers, contextualized by accompanying workshops and demonstrations and discussions.
UW-Green Bay Chair and Professor of Music Cheryl Grosso offered this post-concert response:
“The presentation is the perfect complement of insightful scholarship and stunning musicianship. Francesca Anderegg is a violinist of uncommon technical mastery and musical depth. Her impassioned and provocative interpretations are made even more memorable by the rich and expansive timbres she produces with musical ease.
Reinaldo Moya contributes an astute and discerning account of historical, cultural, and theoretical considerations of important Latin American composers. Together, Anderegg and Moya offer an authentic, informed, and exciting program with lasting impact.”
