V adim Gluzman, one of the finest violinists on the world stage, reunites with his former confederate Jean-Marie Zeitouni in a program that brings together the sublime and the avant-garde.

But first, Gluzman and Julie Triquet, I Musici’s concertmaster, exchange compliments in Schnittke’s whimsical Concerto Grosso No. 1. To open the concert, I Musici expands to interpret Prokofiev’s vibrant Classical Symphony.
