New Music Doesn’t Have to Hurt - A Conversation with Tracy Silverman

January 4, 2022

Pioneering electric violinist Tracy Silverman shares his thoughts on the music of our time, and its role in the evolution of string playing and classical music.

Formerly first violinist with the Turtle Island String Quartet, Silverman was named one of 100 distinguished alumni by The Juilliard School and was lauded by the BBC as "the greatest living exponent of the electric violin." He has performed as a soloist with many of the world’s finest orchestras, and is the subject of several electric violin concertos composed specifically for him by Pulitzer-winner John Adams, Terry Riley, Nico Muhly, Kenji Bunch and others, and has composed 3 electric violin concertos of his own.
