UCSB Arts & Lectures presents powerhouse violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja, 2018 Artistic Director of the Ojai Music Festival, making her California recital debut with pianist Polina Leschenko in a clever program of Poulenc, Ravel, Enenscu and Bartók on Tues., Dec. 11, at 7 p.m. at Music Academy of the West’s Hahn Hall (1070 Fairway Rd.).
The New York Times describes Kopatchinskaja as “A player of rare expressive energy and disarming informality, of whimsy and theatrical ambition.”
“[She inhabits] a special place all her own, where dark and light enhance one another, heightening the senses,” writes Mark Swed, of the Los Angeles Times.
