Ivoryton Playhouse On Site/Off Site Series presents Sanne Zwikker – The Gen Z violinist
Ivoryton – On Monday, September 27th 18th at 7:00pm, Sanne Zwikker will present a solo violin concert at the Ivoryton Playhouse. The repertoire will include works from Bach – Partita No. 1 in B minor and Sonata No.1 in G minor - as well as technical masterpieces from Paganini – Caprice No. 11 and No. 20.
Sanne Zwikker is a 14-year-old Dutch-American violinist from New York City who has been playing since she was three years old. She studied at the Manhattan School of Music and in 2018 was declared “the young, super talented violinist from New York City” by the classical music magazine, Luister.
In the summer of 2019, Sanne brought her GenZ Tour to the Netherlands, where she performed the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto with sold out performances in 4 cities. Mexican-American conductor, Felipe Tristan praised her: “She is very talented and driven, and her repertoire is difficult.” In the same year, her crossover version of Bach’s 1st Sonata with world champ beatboxer, B-Art was streamed live to 100K gen Z followers. LEVEN magazine called her the “young protégée who builds bridges in the world of music”, referring to working across borders, music styles, and age groups.
Sanne Zwikker studies under the tutelage of Xiao Wang (a Curtis alumni and former student of Joseph Silverstein) and Kyung Yu (a Juilliard alumni and former student and assistant of Dorothy DeLay). Her principle influence is Ida Haendel and Julia Fischer.
