Uniting Music Of The Cutting Edge With The Distant Past

By Erik Petersons on October 28, 2013

For all his hip Brooklyn looks, and up to the minute repertoire, violinist Tim Fain is giving Philadelphia Chamber Music Society traditionalists surprisingly little to fear in his forthcoming Nov. 1st recital....This is one classical musician who doesn't embrace the future by turning the page on the past.

This is the introduction that the Philadelphia Inquirer’s David Patrick Stearns gives for his recent interview on WRTI with this rising artist who is pushing boundaries by connecting the new frontiers of music with the tradition behind us.  Fain's insight into his program is very helpful in understanding how these pieces fit together.  The four-minute spot is worth a quick listen for a concert that, come Friday, you'll wish didn't end.
