Award-winning Jamaican-American violist Jordan Bak is an international trailblazer praised for his radiant stage presence, dynamic interpretations, and fearless power. He has assembled his favorite collaborators for a concert featuring works both for the solo viola and for multiple instruments and voice. The program includes Mozart’s pellucid duet for violin and viola and the rapturous viola songs of Brahams and Loeffler, the latter a devotee and confidant of Isabella Stewart Gardner.

Jordan Bak, viola, is joined by:

  • Geneva Lewis, violin
  • Kara Dugan, mezzo soprano
  • Peter Dugan, piano

This concert is made possible by the generous support of the Wendy Shattuck Young Artist Fund.
