First Prize Winner, 2016 Concert Artists Guild Victor Elmaleh Competition
This concert is presented by Concert Artists Guild, a non-profit organization that helps young musicians launch concert careers.
Guitarist Jiji is an adventurous artist on both acoustic and electric guitar, playing an extensive range of music from traditional and contemporary classical music to free improvisation. Her impeccable musicianship combined with compelling stage presence and fascinating repertoire earned her First Prize at the 2016 CAG Competition.
She will perform works by Steve Reich, J. S. Bach, Ginastera, and Leo Brouwer, as well as the premiere of a new work for electric guitar and electronics, Dimmar Öldur Rísa (Dim waves rise) by Icelandic guitarist and composer Gulli Björnsson. Jiji will also perform Tread Lightly for You Tread on My Dreams, a 2008 work by her former teacher at the Yale University School of Music, Ben Verdery, and Arvo Pärt’s Fratres featuring the Argus Quartet, violist Nick Revel and bassist Erez Meyuhass.
