A Celebration of Yehudi Wyner
A Michael B. Rukin Memorial Concert
Wednesday, March 22, 2017 at 7:30PM
30 Gainsborough Street
Winner of both the Pulitzer Prize in Music and a Grammy award, Yehudi Wyner is one of the great treasures of Boston’s classical music world. He has received commissions from the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the BBC Philharmonic, Library of Congress, the Ford Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
His other honors include two Guggenheim Fellowships, The Institute of Arts and Letters Award, the Rome Prize, the Brandeis Creative Arts Award, and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s Elise Stoeger Prize for “lifetime contribution
to chamber music.”
“A musical mensch-in-residence,” The Boston Globe describes him as “a composer with a fiercely independent spirit, a modernist who believes that serious music can and should still bring sensual pleasure.”
The program captures the eclectic diversity of Yehudi’s work. Following the performance, classical music critic Lloyd Schwartz will moderate a discussion with Yehudi.
Reception: 6:00 PM
Concert: 7:30 PM
