Published on

The Marin Symphony presents Bach's Brandenburg Concertos No. 1, 3, 4 and 5, plus two works by Arvo Pärt on March 4th and 6th, 2012. Maestro Alasdair Neale, concertmaster violinist Jeremy Constant and the orchestra bring Bach and Pärt side-by-side to the Symphony stage. Though his virtuoso performances take flight through his hands and the ex-Heberlein Stradivarius, donated to the San Francisco Symphony expressly for his use, music is not Jeremy’s only passion. Flying is a release for him. Discover more.

Marin Symphony, Ingenious Interplay, Bach & Pärt, Jeremy Constant

  1. 1. Jeremy Constant Fresh. Local. Music. 59th Season | Maestro Alasdair Neale’s 10th Anniversary
  2. 2. FEATURED ARTIST & CONCERTMASTER, JEREMY CONSTANT LOVES MUSIC & FLIGHT The Marin Symphony’s fourth program in its 59th Season of Fresh Local Music features concertmaster Jeremy Constant Sunday, March 4, and Tuesday, March 6, 2012. Featured artist Jeremy Constant is originally from Canada, where he won the Grand Prize in the 1979 Du Maurier competition. He has studied in New York with Ivan Galamian and violinist Itzhak Perlman. Jeremy moved to the San Francisco Bay Area after participating in the Carmel Bach Festival with Sandor Salgo, founder of the Marin Symphony.Featured Artist | Jeremy Constant, violin | Ingenious Interplay | Concert No. 4
  3. 3. BACH & PÄRTJeremy Constant expresses insights into the upcoming performance.“ This concert is very unusual in that I’m a soloist on every piece in the program, except one. I’ll be playing the Brandenburg concerti and Arvo Pärt Fratres. It’s a very cool piece. The Brandenburgs are really well known, well loved, and immediately enjoyable pieces. The interesting thing about the pairing of the Brandenburgs and the Fratres—the Fratres is a very meditative piece. It’s extremely spiritual. The connection is that Bach was first and foremost a religious composer. The counterpoint and running lines of ” Bach’s music can take you into that same head space. Featured Artist | Jeremy Constant, violin | Ingenious Interplay | Concert No. 4
  4. 4. FLYING & MUSICANOTHER SIDE OF JEREMY...Though his virtuoso performances take flight through his hands and the ex-Heberlein Stradivarius, donated to the San Francisco Symphony expressly forhis use, music is not Jeremy’s only passion. Flying is a release for him.“ Because it’s so different. My flying friends seem surprised that I like the engineering aspect of it, the flight-testing aspect, the analytical aspect. You do this and this will happen. It’s something you can predict, and if you’re not getting the right ” results, you’ve done something wrong. Featured Artist | Jeremy Constant, violin | Ingenious Interplay | Concert No. 4
  5. 5. FLYING & MUSIC “ That’s totally different than music. Music is interpretive, creative, generative… The whole idea is to not do it like someone else has. It’s a communicative process. Ultimately you’re telling a story. You want to affect someone’s emotions. What I like about flying is that it is tapping into different parts of my personality, ” different parts of my brain.Featured Artist | Jeremy Constant, violin | Ingenious Interplay | Concert No. 4
  6. 6. FLYING & MUSIC “ I have to say while in performance you may be so nervous you feel like you’re going to die, but it’s a death you can live with. Flying is an endeavor of real consequence. I kind of like that. In music there are many, many, many things that are ambiguous — especially when you play in an orchestra. It’s a ” collaborative process.Featured Artist | Jeremy Constant, violin | Ingenious Interplay | Concert No. 4
