Location:first Baptist Church in America
Description:The First Baptist Church in America is honored to present an afternoon recital of one of J.S Bach’s greatest masterworks, J.S. Bach’s Partita No, 2 in D Minor, by one of the world’s most respected musicians, violinist Arturo Delmoni. The recital will be free and open to the public; voluntary contributions may be made afterwards. Arturo Delmoni is one of the most celebrated artists of his generation. His remarkably distinctive violin playing embodies the romantic warmth that was the special genius of the great virtuosi of the golden age. Yo-Yo Ma describes Delmoni as "an enormously gifted musician and an impeccable violinist. His playing style is unique, and his gorgeous sound is reminiscent of that of great violinists from a bygone era." Glenn Dicterow, concertmaster of the NY Philharmonic, says, "Delmoni's playing always goes right to the heart, and his charisma is irresistible." Richard Dyer of the Boston Globe wrote: "It's hard to imagine how the violin could be much better played than Delmoni did—he plays with astonishing speed, lightness, fluency and sweetness of tone." Dr. Delmoni plays a violin made by J.B. Guadagnini in 1780.
