Lakes Area Music Festival

Jackiw Plays Dvořák

Brainerd, MN

Wed Aug 14, 2024 - 7:30PM

Gichi-ziibi Center for the Arts

In a deeply moving new work, American composer Leanna Primiani centers the heroic stories of the survivors of human trafficking, painting a sonic landscape that emerges from tragic darkness into hope and light, and awakening our understanding of this tragic issue. Stefan Jackiw, a virtuosic musician with “talent that’s off the scale” (The Washington Post) makes his Lakes Area debut in Dvořák’s passionate and emotional Violin Concerto.

  • LAMF flute player Brook Ferguson played in the world premiere performance and recommended we perform it at the Festival, saying “It starts out darkly and ends with the most luminous coda; literally darkness to light. Sometimes our biggest hero is our own inner strength and resilience.”
  • Minnesota has the 3rd highest number of human trafficking cases in the U.S.; however, Minnesota has also become a national leader in responding to and preventing human trafficking.
  • The violin concerto was first performed in Prague. Antonín Dvořák wrote the piece after being inspired by one of the leading violinists of the day, Joseph Joachim. However, Mr. Joachim disagreed with some of the decisions Dvořák made in writing it and never performed the piece.
