Four Seasons Features presents the world’s leading musicians in solo settings, with an emphasis on special projects. The 2018-2019 Four Seasons Features will present Israeli virtuoso violinist Miram Fried and her life-long study of the complete Sonatas and Partitas by Bach. The concert will include an open conversation with Miriam before a performance of Sonatas and Partitas and the Bach Two Violin Concerto. Four Seasons Features is part of the Greenville season subscription package.
Miriam Fried has played with virtually every major orchestra in the United States and Europe and has been a frequent guest with the principal orchestras of Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, New York, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, as well as with the Israel Philharmonic, the London Symphony, the Royal Philharmonic and the Vienna Symphony. Recital tours have taken her to all of the major music centers in North America and to Brussels, London, Milan, Munich, Rome, Paris, Salzburg, Stockholm and Zurich.
Miriam Fried plays a particularly noteworthy violin, a 1718 Stradivarius that is said to have been the favorite of its 18th-century owner, the composer-conductor Louis Spohr. It was also owned by Regina Strinasacchi who, it is thought, used the instrument to play with Mozart the Sonata in B-flat, K. 454, which had been written for her.
A noted pedagogue, Miriam Fried is a professor at New England Conservatory and is invited to give master classes throughout the world. Since 1994 she has been program Director of the Ravinia Steans Music Institute, one of the country's leading summer programs for young musicians. View Full Bio
