Benjamin Beilman made his D.C. debut at the Kennedy Center in a 2012 Young Concert Artists Series recital, and has since solidified his status as a preeminent musician of his generation. This charismatic young violinist has been praised for his “handsome technique, burnished sound, and quiet confidence” (The New York Times). Pianist Orion Weiss, featured in another Fortas recital earlier in March, returns to join Beilman for Beethoven and Bartók sonatas, plus a new piece by prolific composer Frederic Rzewski, specially composed for Beilman.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A Note from Joseph "Yossi" Kalichstein, Artistic Director of Fortas
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A new commission by Rzewski and one of Bartók’s most mysterious and atmospheric pieces are sandwiched between Beethoven’s first and last sonatas, giving this program an organic feel. Benjamin and Orion are part of an amazing new generation of musicians for whom virtuosity is a given; they devote their focus and inspiration to digging deeper into the music. I’ve actually played the last Beethoven Sonata with Benjamin, and loved exploring it with him!
