COLUMBIA — Philippe Quint and Vadim Gluzman will be coming to the Missouri Theatre Center for the Arts this Friday and Saturday for the Festival of the Violin. Tickets, available at the Missouri Theatre box office or at motheatre.org, are still available for both nights. The concert is one of 20 included in the Hot Summer Nights Music Festival.
Friends and fellow violinists, Quint and Gluzman will play together in a classical “dueling” fiddles-style
as well as individually. The Missouri Symphony Orchestra will accompany them on some selections.
Russian-born, Quint’s orchestral debut was at the age of 9, and he earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the Juilliard School. His first album received two Grammy nominations.
Gluzman began studying the violin when he was 7. He plays a 1690 ex-Leopold Auer Stradivarius on loan to him from the Stradivari Society of Chicago. He plays regularly with major symphonies, including the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
