BRUNSWICK — Tamsin Waley-Cohen, a British-American violin soloist, will perform at Bowdoin International Music Festival’s July 10 Festival Fridays concert. She will perform Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in E Minor, Op. 64, with the Bowdoin Festival Orchestra, conducted by Lewis Kaplan.
The program will open with Brahms’ second Piano Quartet, featuring Barry Snyder on piano. The Grammy award-winning Ying Quartet is also on the evening program, presenting Dvorák’s popular “American” String Quartet.
Waley-Cohen has performed with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestra of St John’s, London Concert Orchestra and London Chamber Orchestra; in Wigmore Hall, Cadogan Hall, Barbican, Symphony Hall Birmingham, Queen Elizabeth Hall; and in venues across England, Scotland, Italy and Israel. A former Bowdoin Festival student, she has won prizes in several European competitions.
Snyder was a triple prize winner in the 1966 Van Cliburn International Competition and has been a member of the Eastman Trio (1976-82) and the Meadowmount Trio (1989-90). He has been a soloist with Detroit, Houston, Atlanta, National, Montreal, Singapore and Japan philharmonic orchestras, and has made 32 solo, concerto and chamber recordings. Snyder’s Eastman School of Music colleagues, violinist Mikhail Kopleman and cellist Rosemary Elliot, will join him for the performance. Former festival viola fellow Milena Pajaro-van de Stadt will round out the group.
The concert will begin at 8 p.m. in Crooker Theater at Brunswick High School. Tickets are $35. Other concert dates: July 3, 10, 17, 24, 31, and Aug. 7.
