Associate Professor of Violin Timothy Kantor will present his final recital at the University of Arizona. He will be leaving Arizona to join the faculty of the Sydney Conservatorium of Music in Australia this fall. The recital opens with one of Mozart’s brilliant violin sonatas, the heart of which is a colossal D-minor theme and variations movement. This is followed by a lively quartet for violins performed with Adjunct Instructor and Tucson Symphony Associate Concertmaster Michelle Abraham Kantor and two of Professor Kantor’s extraordinarily accomplished former students. The program will conclude with Beethoven’s ultimate contribution to the violin sonata repertoire, a piece that in many ways concludes his heroic middle compositional period and alludes to some of the profound innovations of his latest works.
