Rachell Ellen Wong, Coleman Itzkoff & David Belkovski
October 23, 2022
A rising star of historically informed performance, Rachell Ellen Wong brings rare expressive nuance and refreshing vitality to her famously soft-spoken instrument of choice, the Baroque violin. Wong is a recipient of a prestigious 2020 Avery Fisher Career Grant, and the only early-music specialist recognized in the award’s history. In her Cal Performances debut, she performs a signature work, Biber’s Sonata No. 5; a solo arrangement of Tartini’s fiery The Devil’s Trill; and dazzling sonatas by Corelli, Herrando, Veracini, and Bach, accompanied by harpsichordist David Belkovski and cellist Coleman Itzkoff.
