Stefan Jackiw returns to Seattle Symphony

In February, Jackiw returned to the Seattle Symphony in Barber's Violin Concerto. Music blog The Gathering Note raved, "Jackiw, who has phenomenal gifts, took readily to the material with a gorgeous, smooth tone and very fast fingers. Nothing seems to disturb this young musician's aplomb in which everything sounds natural and easy" (read the review). Later this month, Jackiw tours California with Mikhail Pletnev and the Russian National Orchestra in Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto. In March, Jackiw will perform Mozart with the Philadelphia Orchestra under Sir Andrew Davis, and Bruch's Scottish Fantasy with the Cincinnati Symphony under Arild Remmereit.
