Miriam Fried, violin
Works of Solo Bach
"I have always considered her one of the major musicians on the violin in our time."
Miriam Fried is recognized as one of today’s major violin virtuosos and pedagogues in North America, Europe, the Far East and Israel. A consummate musician—equally accomplished as recitalist, concerto soloist or chamber musician—she has been heralded for her “fiery intensity and emotional depth” (Musical America) as well as for her technical mastery. Her supreme blend of artistry and musicianship continues to inspire audiences worldwide.
She has played with virtually every major orchestra in the United States and Europe and has been a frequent guest with the principal orchestras and performed in recital throughout the US and internationally. A noted pedagogue, Miriam Fried is on the faculty of New England Conservatory, and since 1993 has been artistic director of the Ravinia Festival outside of Chicago.
Her program of solo Bach for MITM is part of an international tour that leads to her much-anticipated upcoming recording in Israel of the complete Sonatas and Partitas.
