ANAM Recital: Peter Gjelsten (violin)

As a musician’s instrumental proficiency develops, so too does their artistic taste and temperament. Each ANAM musician’s recital is a snapshot in time - simultaneously summarising their year of training and revealing glimpses of their future selves. What music excites them? What do they want to communicate? How does their art help them understand the world better? Experience the unique and intimate points of view of each musician individually in this recital series. Hear what the next generation of virtuosi have to say, and how.

In 2024 the ANAM Set is back in a special iteration. Musicians in their 3rd year of training present a specially commissioned work as part of their recital program.

Unveiling the Violins Mastery

"My programme has been put together to showcase the violin’s mastery, encompassing passion, lyrical beauty, intense drama, and a little bit of surprising humor. I have known these pieces for quite some time, always being inspired and itching to get my hands on them. I am excited to finally have an excuse to perform these pieces, and I have enjoyed working on them tremendously. It will be immensely gratifying to be able to play them on the piano and in front of an audience." - Peter Gjelsten
