Gary Karr has a lighter side and enjoyed having fun with his audience. Here's a short clip of him playing the Entertainer in 1987 which showcases his incredible talent:
World-renowned solo bassist Gary Karr debuted alongside the great Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic Orchestra in 1962. Now retired, Eine Kleine was fortunate enough to host performances by him and pianist Harmon Lewis in 2015.
We are delighted to have booked the JCT (Junction) Trio for this year's festival. JCT are 3 'superstar' musicians that have come together to form a 'super trio'. More details coming shortly, but violinist Stefan Jackiw is a member and he has just been featured on the cover of Strings Magazine.
We thought we'd start off the EKSM Facebook page with some light-hearted musical humor. Follow us for news about the festival, the artists & the composers. Oh yes, the odd music joke also.
