Violinist Rachel Lee Priday has begun the New Year with characteristic panache, performing a three-concert recital tour of California with frequent collaborator David Kaplan, offering programs including Christopher Cerrone’s Sonata for Violin and Piano (a work she premiered in 2015), and works by Ravel, Prokofiev, Mozart, and Brahms. (Learn more about the tour here.)
In early February she reunites with the Asia/America New Music Institute (with whom she toured China in Summer 2015, appearing at the Beijing Modern Music Festival, Tianjin May Festival, and Shenyang Conservatory), bringing performances, masterclasses and community outreach to Snow College in Utah.
And on Feb. 13, Lee Priday performs the Brahms Violin Concerto with Tito Muñoz and the String Orchestra of Brooklyn.
Other upcoming dates include an unaccompanied recital at the Morton Arboretum, Lalo’s Symphonie espagnole with Eckart Preu and the Stamford Symphony, and the MozartSinfonia concertante with Carl St. Clair and the Pacific Symphony.
