Born into a Moldavian family of musicians, violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja is known as much for the passion and virtuosity of her playing as for the fact that she often performs barefoot. Dubbed the “wild child” of the violin, she performs around the world and is celebrated for her charm, charisma, and an expressiveness likened to that of a stage actor. The natural phenomenon comes to the Board of Officers Room with cellist Jay Campbell to perform duos from a wide-ranging repertoire that showcases the pair’s extreme styles of music-making.
