New video: Stefan with Pittsburgh Symphony

In April 2014, Stefan returned to the Pittsburgh Symphony to perform Mendelssohn's violin concerto under the direction of Juraj Valčuha. Pittsburgh newspaper TribLIVE reported: "Violinist Stefan Jackiw's solo soars for PSO... the searing performance of Jackiw was the obvious highlight of the evening" (read full review here). The Pittsbugh Post-Gazette reported, "the performance demonstrated the violinist's virtuosity, as well as his ability to forgo it for the sake of stirring lyricism" (read full review here). A brief clip of the final moments of Stefan's performance can be seen here.
