Violinist Odin Rathnam returns to the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra concert series after a stunning rendition of Brahms' Violin Concerto. Rathnam gives an interpretation of the Violin Concerto by Erich Wolfgang Korngold, who is considered as one of the founders of film music. The Violin Concerto is the first work written by the composer for the concert hall. The concert also features Massenet’s Scènes de Féerie, Enesco’s Romanian Rhapsody No. 1 and Ginastera’s Estancia Ballet Suite.
ABOUT THE GUEST SOLOIST:
Odin Rathnam, violin
Since his critically acclaimed Lincoln Center debut in 1993, the American violinist Odin Rathnam has established himself as one of the most passionate and versatile artists of his generation. He has received unanimous praise from critics and audiences for his "captivating temperament," "brilliant technique" and “recalling the legendary violinists of the past”. Mr. Rathnam is a veteran performer at many major European and American music festivals. As a soloist, he has performed with the Baltimore Chamber Orchestra, the Colombian National Symphony, the Harrisburg Symphony, the Lancaster Symphony, the York Symphony, the EMMF Orchestra, The New Amsterdam Symphony and the Randers Chamber Orchestra, to name a few. As a chamber musician, Odin Rathnam has collaborated (violin/viola) with leading artists of his generation.
Recent seasons have included performances of concerti of Bernstein, Mozart and Bach with the Philadelphia Virtuosi, and multiple engagements with conductor Stephen Gunzenhauser and the EMMF Orchestra. In 2007, he made his Tivoli Festival debut playing Prokofiev Sonata for Two Violins with Nikolai Znaider. The Danish newspaper, Kristelig Dagblad, hailed the “outstanding, full-blooded romantic violin playing by both players.”
Mr. Rathnam is extremely committed to the development of young musicians and his numerous students have been accepted at major conservatories throughout the United States and abroad, several going on to win prizes in national and international competitions.
Mr. Rathnam received his early training at Juilliard Pre-College and Mannes College of Music with Sally Thomas, returning to the Juilliard School as a scholarship student of Dorothy DeLay and Masao Kawasaki. He studied chamber music with Julius Levine, Felix Galimir, Joel Smirnoff, and Josef Gingold.
Odin Rathnam performs on a late 19th century violin crafted by an unknown maker, in the manner of Guarnerius Del Gesu’s middle period, and on an Italian violin by Batolomeo Calvarola, built in 1755.
