the long version

The last time superstar violinist Stefan Jackiw joined us in the Crypt, he performed the soul-shattering Quartet for the End of Time. This time, he’s pieced together a haunting program that weaves between memories made and lost. From Arvo Pärt’s gripping Fratres to Conrad Tao’s All I Had Forgotten or Tried To, to wistful masterworks by Handel and Brahms, you’re in for an odyssey of remembrance. You usually can find Jackiw traveling worldwide and collaborating with international icons, so we’re deeply grateful to welcome him back to our humble Crypt for this one-night-only event alongside pianist Kevin Ahfat.

The short version

Feeling melancholic during this endless winter? Allow this reflection on the fleeting nature of memory to take you on a journey through the music of composers past, present, and future.

The Artists

The Performers

Stefan Jackiw

With “talent that's off the scale" (The Washington Post), Stefan Jackiw is one of America’s foremost violinists, captivating audiences with playing that combines poetry and purity with impeccable technique. Hailed for playing of “uncommon musical substance” that is “striking for its intelligence and sensitivity” (Boston Globe), Jackiw has appeared as a soloist with the Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, New York, Philadelphia, and San Francisco symphony orchestras, among others.

Kevin Ahfat

An artist that “leaves no question about his riveting presentation and technical finesse” (Seattle Times), Canadian pianist Kevin Ahfat is acclaimed to be “poised to become one of the young heirs of the classical piano realm, with a bold, boundary-pushing, millennial style matched by refined execution” (Vanguard Seattle). Possessing “a balanced mix of expressiveness and virtuosity” (Musical America), he “summons plenty of thunderpower in the big moments, but clearly values musicianship over mere showmanship” (American Record Guide).
