Lecture Recital: "Arrangement of Janacek Violin Sonata for Viola"

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This lecture will give some background and context for Janáček’s Violin Sonata, and why it was an attractive option to arrange for viola. Dr. Adams will detail some of the challenges and considerations – both technical and musical – that shaped his arrangement of the work.

Lauded for his “engaging” performances and “expressive and intense” playing (American Record Guide), Jacob Adams made his solo debut with the Cincinnati Symphony at age 17. Recent and upcoming performances include engagements in Wellington, Havana, Prague, Seattle, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, Boston, and New York. Adams is Assistant Professor of Viola at the University of Alabama, and his album Czech Portraits was recorded for Centaur.
