General Admission

Grammy Award-winner Patricia Kopatchinskaja is considered the world’s most exhilarating violinist for her singular approach to baroque and classical repertoire, new commissions and reinterpretations of modern masterworks. Music director of the 2018 Ojai Music Festival, she intrigues fellow artists, conductors, composers, collaborators and audiences alike. Hailed as “dizzyingly unpredictable and almost unbearably exciting” by Mark Swed of the Los Angeles Times, “her body and her instrument and the music she makes all seem one. She is ever thrilling alive to the moment.”

Bartók: Violin Sonata No. 2, Sz. 76
Poulenc: Sonate pour violon et piano
Enescu: Violin Sonata No. 3, op. 25
Ravel: Tzigane

“[She inhabits] a special place all her own, where dark and light enhance one another, heightening the senses.” – Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times
