Violinist Josefowicz

October 15, 1994

I was delighted to read about Leila Josefowicz's splendid playing of the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto with Neville Marriner and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields ("A Crowded House . . . and Stage," Sept. 27). But I must say that Marriner was not introducing this exciting young musician to Southern California, as reviewer Daniel Cariaga wrote. Among her prior public performances in the area, I am proud to count her Los Angeles Philharmonic and Hollywood Bowl debuts, performing the Vieuxtemps Concerto No. 5 in September, 1990.

At that time, Josefowicz was a student of Robert Lipsett in the Colburn School of Performing Arts in Los Angeles. As Cariaga noted, she is now studying at Philadelphia's Curtis Institute with Jaime Laredo, and I am happy to say that she will be back, performing with Laredo and the Los Angeles Philharmonic in Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante, K. 364, and Bach's D-minor Concerto for Two Violins, at the Music Center, Feb. 9, 10, 11 and 12, 1995.
