Virtue and Virtuosity

Featuring violinist Soovin Kim

This program explores the conflict and connection inherent in what it means to be virtuous and virtuosic. They come from the same root, but in many ways they are opposites: virtue suggests respect and discipline; virtuosity, bravado and ease. From the virtue of Bach and the virtuosity of Berio, the Criers take on their biggest work yet with Beethoven’s monumental Violin Concerto, featuring acclaimed violinist and NEC faculty member Soovin Kim.
