Noah Bendix-Balgley, violin

 

Either a violinist’s dream recital program or their worst nightmare: Noah Bendix-Balgley takes the stage alone for a solo violin program full of technical Everests. Spanning five centuries of violin masters, this daunting program begins with Bach’s formidable first violin sonata and one of Paganini’s most fiendish creations. Then we venture into the 21st century with John Corigliano’s “mistuned” bluegrass- and jazz-inspired solo piece written for scordatura violin. Finally,Bendix-Balgley tackles the “almost unplayable” work by Bartók, composed right here in Asheville.

J. S. Bach Violin Sonata No. 1 in G minor

Paganini Caprice No. 24
