Blake Pouliot is one of rising stars of the violin, praised both for his Apollonian elegance and his emotional eloquence. His first-ever Gardner Museum performance will span repertoire from across 280 years, including well-loved classics, new discoveries, and a world premiere. This promises to be a landmark début.

Blake Pouliot is joined by Henry Kramer on piano.

This concert is made possible by the generous support of the Fitzpatrick family.
