Violinist (and Hartt graduate) Gary Capozziello presented a program surveying the solo violin repertory from Bach to Bartók. Gary talked about the challenges composers have confronted in writing for unaccompanied violin, as well as their motivation for doing so. He illustrated his talk with copious examples.

He studied at SUNY-Purchase Conservatory (B.M.), the New England Conservatory (M.M.) and at the Hartt School (DMA). He is an active recitalist and guest artist, and a passionate chamber performer, founding the Atlas Trio in 2016.
