Dan Flanagan: The Bow and the Brush
Violinist-composer Dan Flanagan (danflanaganviolin.com) performs The Bow and the Brush: an evening of 20 solo violin compositions, accompanied by projections of visual art from Flanagan’s personal collection. With music directly inspired by paintings, pastels, mixed media, and sculptures, the program highlights pieces by Raffaëlli, Guillaumin, Pinchon, and living artists including Paul Gibson, Nikki Vismara, and Elaine Pratt. The concert serves as a CD release party for Flanagan’s upcoming solo album, The Bow and the Brush, slated for release on MSR Classics, with visual video accompaniment of the art to be uploaded to YouTube. All of the musical works are Berkeley premieres; Works by Stephenson and Mecionis will be West Coast Premieres; and works by Neville, Weston and Flanagan (“Timeless”) will be World Premieres.
