BÉLA FLECK, BANJO 
ABIGAIL WASHBURN, BANJO/ VOICE
 
April 13, 2017 at 8:00pm
Richardson Auditorium, Alexander Hall
 
Béla Fleck is one of the most innovative and influential banjo players in the history of the instrument, often combining classical harmony with an effortless Scruggs style. He was at the helm of such landmark groups as the Flecktones and the Africa Project, and recently wrote his first Banjo Concerto, commissioned and premiered by the Nashville Symphony Orchestra. With 15 Grammys and 30 nominations, he has been nominated in more musical categories than any other artist in Grammy history! 
 
The collaboration with his wife and fellow banjoist, Abigail Washburn, is one of the most magical in his catalogue, with the purity of two-part counterpoint in full force guided by Abigail's soulful singing and claw-hammer style. In Princeton University Concerts' season anchored by timeworn masterworks, Fleck and Washburn offer a slightly different perspective in the mix, drawing from the great vernacular music of Appalachia.

PAMELA FRANK, VIOLIN
CHRISTIAN TETZLAFF, VIOLIN
 
April 20, 2017 at 8:00pm
Richardson Auditorium, Alexander Hall
 
Two of the most revered violinists of our generation come together for a special evening of rarely performed works for two violins. 
 
In 2000, Pamela Frank received the Avery Fisher Prize-perhaps the highest honor given to American instrumentalists. Teaching at Curtis and Peabody, her public concerts have been precious few in recent years. She has now returned to the concert stage, bringing her "big, rich sound ... that breathes with purpose" (Philadelphia Inquirer). 
 
The other half of the duo is none other than Christian Tetzlaff, who is becoming a staple at Richardson Auditorium after his extraordinary solo debut in 2012 and the sold-out follow-up with his eponymous trio last season. A violin duo is perhaps the most intimate and conversational of all the chamber music forms, and these two masters -- who have been friends for decades -- invite you into the discussion.
