10/20/09: Devil's Trill

GERALD ELIAS is Associate Concertmaster of the Utah Symphony, Adjunct Professor of Music at the University of Utah and first violinist of the Abramyan String Quartet

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, Utah – A man set-up for a crime he didn't commit, a theft, and a murder may not sound like a story set in Carnegie Hall, but violinist Gerald Elias knows the darker side of classical music. His debut novel is a mystery and it introduces readers to backstabbing teachers and performers, corrupt patrons, and shady violin dealers. But it's not just a whodunit. Elias takes on issues like how we connect to music and where we find its real beauty. He joins us with his violin to talk about "Devil's Trill."

This Sunday, October 25th at 7:00 p.m., Gerald Elias will perform with guest pianist Victor Rosenbaum. It's part of Libby Gardner Hall's Sundays at 7 concert series. Admission is free. The concert will be followed by a book signing - with proceeds benefiting the University of Utah's School of Music Scholarship Fund. Libby Gardner Hall, University of Utah, 1375 E President's Circle, Salt Lake City. For more information, click here
