Candlelight Concert Society Series: Geneva Lewis & Gabriel Martins

Candlelight Concert Society Series: Geneva Lewis & Gabriel Martins

Join us for world-class chamber music in Baltimore! The Candlelight Concert Society is thrilled to partner with The Peale for a new concert series, Candlelight at the Peale. Starting in December, three concerts will feature world-class, intimate chamber music and chats with artists.

Lauded for her “remarkable mastery of her instrument” (CVNC), New Zealand-born violinist Geneva Lewis is establishing herself as one of the most promising young talents on the global stage. Since her solo debut at age 11 with the Pasadena POPS, Geneva has gone on to perform with orchestras including the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, Pasadena Symphony, Sarasota Orchestra, Pensacola Symphony and Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra and with conductors including Nicholas McGegan, Edwin Outwater, Michael Feinstein, Sameer Patel, Peter Rubardt, and Dirk Meyer.

She will be joined by the award-winning cellist Gabriel Martins, who is praised as “one of the most exciting artists of his generation” (92NY), in an exciting program of classic chamber music.

Cellist Gabriel Martins has already been recognized through an extensive list of accolades including the Concert Artists Guild/Young Classical Artists Trust Grand Prize, the Sphinx Competition Gold Medal, the David Popper International Cello Competition Gold Medal, the International Tchaikovsky Competition for Young Musicians Silver Medal, the Schadt String Competition Gold Medal, the Orford Music Award, and the Prague Spring Czech Music Fund Prize. These successes have led to a number of high-profile debuts including Carnegie, Merkin, and Wigmore Halls, 92nd Street Y, the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory, Maison Symphonique in Montréal, and the Arkansas, Houston, Indianapolis, Memphis, New Russian State, Omaha, Pacific, Phoenix and São Paulo Symphony Orchestras. In 2022, The Strad Magazine declared his New York City recital debut to be “flawlessly played…a deeply moving experience”, and Classic FM named him one of their “30 under 30” Rising Stars.

Lauded for his “rich, warm” and “mesmerizing” sound, Martins carries a concerto repertoire spanning every major work. In recital, his performances of the Bach Cello Suites have garnered particular recognition. Martins’ playing has been broadcast on NPR, WQXR, KUSC, WFMT, and more.
