Mizrahi & Wiancko revised

In partnership with Villa Musica, Art of Élan is thrilled to present the San Diego debut of The Wiancko/Mizrahi Duo, featuring violinist Michi Wiancko and pianist Michael Mizrahi in an exciting program of works by Philip Glass, Schoenberg, Schubert, John Adams, Sarah Kirkland Snider, Will Mason, John Cage, electronic guru Paula Matthusen, and San Diego’s own Christopher Adler.

Over the past year, Art of Élan has developed a bi-coastal conversation with artists from New Amsterdam Records, presenting numerous collaborative productions and working to affect cultural change on both coasts. New Amsterdam Records is a record label that specializes in music without filters, made by musicians who bring the breadth of their listening experience and the love they have for many different kinds of music into their own playing, writing, and producing – essentially music without walls.

Additional New Amsterdam collaborations this season include a special CROSSFIRE show at The Glashaus on Nov. 29th, a FREE community concert featuring NOW Ensemble at The San Diego Museum of Art on May 9th, and a collaboration with Malashock Dance on June 1st-3rd at the Lyceum Theatre.

About The Wiancko/Mizrahi Duo:

Praised as “intrepid” (Philadelphia Inquirer), “engaging” (Houston Chronicle), and “endlessly fascinating” (WQXR New York), pianist Michael Mizrahi has won acclaim for his compelling performances of a wide-ranging repertoire and his ability to connect with audiences of all ages. He has appeared as concerto soloist, recitalist, chamber musician, and teaching artist across the United States and abroad.

Michi Wiancko is an internationally-acclaimed and multi-dimensional violinist, composer, and collaborator, described by Gramophone as an “alluring soloist with heightened expressive and violinistic gifts.” As a composer, Michi has written an ever-growing body of work for her band, Kono Michi, described by The Strad as “intriguing and exquisitely beautiful…music that breaks through the pop classical barrier.”
