MUSIC AT THE CARMEL VALLEY LIBRARY IN FEBUARY 2015
VIOLINIST ROY BAK AND PIANIST IRINA BESSONOVA AT THE CARMEL VALLEY LIBRARY ON FEBRUARY 11
February's free family music program sponsored by the Friends of the Carmel Valley Library will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 11 at 7:00 p.m. in the Library's community room. It will feature violinist Roy Bak playing music by Johann Sebastian Bach, Fritz Kreisler, Edward Elgar, Gabriel Faure, and Aram Khachaturian. He will be accompanied by pianist Irina Bessonova. The program will last 45 minutes.
Roy Bak began his violin training at age 11 in Los Angeles. During his teen years he played with the American Youth Symphony under Mehli Mehta. He continued his studies at Gonzaga University and was a finalist in the Spokane Young Artist Competition, performing the Khachaturian Violin Concerto with the Gonzaga Orchestra. Roy enjoys playing solo Bach as well as a varied classical and romantic repertoire on a Stradivarius-model violin.
Irina Bessonova was born in Russia and began studying music at age of four at the National Music School for Gifted Children. She graduated from Kiev State Conservatory with a Master of Arts degree in Piano, Ensemble Performance, Accompaniment, and Piano Pedagogy. She taught at the Gliere College of Music in Kiev for 15 years and was also its leading accompanist. During this time she performed throughout Europe, Russia, and Ukraine. In 2002 she moved to San Diego and has continued her career as a piano soloist, accompanist, and teacher. Some of the venues she has performed at include the San Diego Central, La Jolla, and Carmel Valley Libraries, Museum of Making Music in Carlsbad, Poway Center for the Performing Arts, German American Societies of San Diego, Temecula Community Theater, and many private and corporate events.
