Leonidas Kavakos has established himself as a violinist and artist of rare quality, known at the highest level for his virtuosity, superb musicianship and the integrity of his playing. International recognition first came while Kavakos was still in his teens, winning the Sibelius Competition in 1985 and, three years later, the Paganini Competition.
Kavakos has worn both his soloist and conductor hats in visits to the Boston Symphony Orchestra, where this week he is conducting a program in which he is also soloist in Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 4. This is the second time NEC has been able to benefit from these visits by scheduling a violin masterclass.
During today's masterclass Kavakos will work with three current NEC students and will be awarded an honorary Doctor of Music degree from New England Conservatory. More about this.
This event is made possible by the Richard P. and Claire W. Morse Visiting Artist Fund.
