17th and 21st century violin music from Austria
Andrew McIntosh and Ian Pritchard will be presenting pieces on baroque violin and organ from two mid 17th-century manuscripts: the Codex Rost and the Partiturbuch Ludwig, featuring works by Roberto Sabbatini and the most-beloved Anonymous, alongside music by contemporaries Giovanni Antonio Pandolfi Mealli and Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber. Additionally, the program will include Georg Friedrich Haas's violin solo, de terrae fine (from 2001), and Fantasia sopra ut, re, mi, fa, sol, la by Johann Jakob Froberger (which was published in 1650 by his friend and teacher, Athanasius Kircher, the subject of The Museum's exhibit "The World Is Bound in Secret Knots").
LA-based violinist/composer Andrew McIntosh has a unique and multifaceted career spanning solo, chamber, and early music engagements across the US and in Europe. He focuses on baroque and modern repertoire and performs frequently with ensembles such as Bach Collegium San Diego, Musica Angelica, Tesserae, and the Formalist Quartet, and was recently featured as a baroque violinist performing solo Bach at the San Francisco Symphony's SoundBox Series.
His compositions have been featured at major venues in Europe and the US, including several recent performances at the Walt Disney Concert Hall and at Miller Theatre in New York. He is based in the LA area and currently serves on the faculty of the California Institute of the Arts teaching violin, viola, composition, chamber music, and baroque performance practice.
Ian Pritchard, early keyboardist and musicologist, is active as a performer and as a researcher. As a continuo player he has performed with many leading early music ensembles, such as the Academy of Ancient Music, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, and Florilegium (with which he has toured in Europe and in South America). He earned degrees in harpsichord from Oberlin Conservatory and from the Royal Academy of Music, London, and is currently a PhD candidate in musicology at USC (Los Angeles). In 2003 - 2004 Ian was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to Italy. In 2015 he was elected an Associate of the Royal Academy of Music. He is currently on faculty at the Colburn School Conservatory of Music.
