Noon Hour Concert: Selections from 24 Paganini CapricesExport this event to calendar

Wednesday, March 11, 2020 — 12:30 PM to 1:20 PM EDT

Ben Sung, violinistThe name Paganini conjures as much myth as history for musicians and violinists.  Portraits reveal a gaunt, ghostly man, and much of the music he composed asks for seemingly impossible feats of time and distance.  Join violinist Benjamin Sung for a performance of Paganini's Opus 1: the 24 Caprices for violin solo.  Taken together, these works are a testament to the potential of human achievement - in creativity, in expression, in technique, and in art. 

Associate Professor of Violin at Florida State University, violinist Benjamin Sung is also a Faculty Artist and violin coordinator at the Brevard Music Center, and principal second violin of the Brevard Music Center Orchestra. Recent concert highlights include the 2018 Brevard Music Festival; a complete Beethoven cycle with pianist David Kalhous; an appearance with the FSU University Symphony Orchestra in Piazzolla's Estaciones Portenas for the 2016 ASTA National Conference; and a TED talk for TEDx Fargo. Mr. Sung has an upcoming new solo album featuring works by Sciarrino, Berio, Maderna, and Schnittke; in the 2019-2020 season, he has engagements to play the 24 Caprices by Paganini in Canada, Taiwan, Brazil, and throughout the United States.
