Musical Journeys Concert





American violinist ANDREW SORDS has a celebrated career as a soloist, recitalist, and in performances with his trio. Having appeared with nearly 300 orchestras on 4 continents, Sords has been cited for combining visceral virtuosity with a ravishing tone, while international critics endorse Sords as “a fully formed artist” (Kalisz-Poland News), “utterly radiant” (Canada’s Arts Forum), and “exceptionally heartfelt and soulful” (St. Maarten’s Daily Herald). Closer to home, ClevelandClassical.com gushed: “the stunner of the afternoon was a breathless but magnificently controlled performance of Beethoven’s “Kreutzer” sonata, which Sords charged through with giddy aplomb.

Sords impressed with his total command of technique, consummate musicianship and bravura as he tossed off scads of notes and sang out like a diva - he and Eriko Izumida kept the audience in the palm of their hands all afternoon.” A 2022 début for Palms Springs Concerts elicited the Desert Sun to enthuse: “The Sords-Walz-Durkovic Trio’s] playing was not just technically superb; it was melodious, resonant, expressive, and passionate. The audience could not stop applauding.”
