Jeff Spurgeon of New York radio station WQXR-FM will introduce Rachlin and moderate the discussion portion of the event, after which the violinist will be available to sign copies of his recent recordings — including a new Deutsche Grammophon release of a chamber arrangement of Bach's Goldberg Variations, featuring Rachlin with violist Nobuko Imai and cellist Mischa Maisky.
Rachlin will be the New York Philharmonic's featured soloist this week, performing Saint-SaêŠns's Violin Concerto No. 3 under Philharmonic music director Lorin Maazel. The program also includes Rimsky-Korsakov's Russian Easter Overture and Bart‹k's Concerto for Orchestra. Information and tickets are available at www.nyphil.org.
