Just announced: David Aaron Carpenter, viola and music of Takemitsu, Penderecki, Prokofiev, and Piazzolla


On Mon. October 5 at LPR.

David Aaron Carpenter has been acclaimed by the New York Times as producing "a seductively rich sound and demonstrating both a forceful interpretive personality and remarkable control of his instrument" and by The Strad Magazine as a violist "whose beautiful modulated tone makes a striking impression." Since making his orchestral debut in 2005 with the Philadelphia Orchestra under Christoph Eschenbach, David Aaron Carpenter has been performing with leading musicians and orchestras in the United States and Europe. In 2008, he stepped in at the last minute to replace Maxim Vengerov for performances of Benjamin Yusupov's Viola, Tango, Rock Concerto with the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra in Switzerland. He has performed in the United States at Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, Chicago’s Krannert Center, San Francisco’s Herbst Theatre, among others. As a chamber musician, Mr. Carpenter collaborates with artists such as Emanuel Ax, Sarah Chang, Leonidas Kavakos, Julian Rachlin, Dmitry Sitkovetsky and Jean- Yves Thibaudet.
