Olivia De Prato
From the venue:
Violinist Olivia De Prato presents a virtuoso program of new and recent works for violin and electronics. Internationally recognized as a soloist and chamber musician, De Prato has been described as “flamboyant...convincing” (The New York Times) and an “enchanting violinist” (Messaggero Veneto, Italy). She is a founding member of Mivos Quartet, one of the premiere new music string quartets performing today. This program features two works by Emory faculty: the premiere of Katherine Young’s Mycorrhiza I: With Olivia (Pocket Walk), which was commissioned for De Prato’s “I, A.M. // Artist Mother Project,” and Adam Mirza’s Time Patterns. The program also includes music by Hong Kong-based sound artist Samson Young and New York-based improviser Jen Baker.
