About the Event
As a performer Jonathon Glonek enjoys an unusually broad and flexible repertoire and is recognised for his intense personal style in presenting dramatic and impactful accounts of these works. He has attracted strong critical acclaim for live performances across the range of this repertoire from J.S. Bach, classical sonatas, the romantic virtuoso medium and 20th century works.
Jonathon will be performing J S Bach’s Partita in E Major and Solo Sonata 3 “Ballade” by Eugène Ysaÿe.
The program also features a recently composed work by Ukrainian composer Mikhail Shukh. The fantasy- styled work is a solo adaptation of Rimsky Korsakov’s famous symphonic work Scheherezade.
“I was playing concerts in Kyiv and met Mikhail in 2002. I immediately spotted his masterful style in composing for strings,” Jonathon says. “I suggested he write this piece for solo violin. As a very fine violinist himself, he really took the ball and ran with it. When I received the score it took quite some years and several attempts before I was able to confidently get around the piece. But it is a highly charged spectacular work that I believe will become firmly entrenched in the repertoire.”
