Andrew Wan to play Beethoven in Edmonton

Andrew Wan, Edmonton-born violinist, now co-concertmaster with the OSM, is coming home this weekend to play a concert at the University of Alberta Convocation Hall with pianist Jacques Desprès, a prof in the U of A's music department and a Naxos recording artist.

   On Friday at 8. p.m., the duo will begin what they expect to be a series of three concerts over three years featuring Beethoven's violin sonatas.
   Andrew is the subject of a profile I wrote for La Scèna Musicale last summer. http://www.scena.org/lsm/sm17-9/sm17-9_wan_en.html
Here's a link to the French translation of the article. (The cover picture of Andrew is smaller in the English version.) http://en.calameo.com/read/0002521964127bda5e660
    Andrew also plays in the New Orford String Quartet, which was nominated for a Juno last year. He's become a regular at James Ehnes's Seattle Chamber Music Festival.
Andrew is a brilliant musician, and Edmonton is fortunate he comes home to play occasionally.
