Jessica Park and Robert WarnerLe Violon Spirituel.

Le Concert Spirituel, the Parisian concert series based at the Palais de Tullieries, served as a showcase for the new French Baroque Violin School. Composers such as Rebel, Leclair and Pagin, featured in this program, blended Italian instrumental techniques with the French dance traditions in their violin works.

Praised as an “exceptional talent” by the Frankfurter Neue Presse, violinist Jessica Park captivates audiences from New York to Seoul with a diverse and compelling array of solo and chamber music performances. Equally at home on both modern and baroque violins, Ms. Park has appeared internationally at such venues as the Cologne Philharmonie, Seoul Arts Center, Shanghai Grand Theatre, and the Vienna Konzerthaus; and stateside at Alice Tully Hall, Symphony Hall (Boston), and Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage and Weill Recital Hall.

Robert's musical studies began at a young age in his native Pennsylvania. He holds bachelors degrees in math and music from the University of Rochester and became interested in early music while exploring the harpsichord and baroque violin at the Eastman School of Music. As a graduate student, Robert studied harpsichord with Arthur Haas at Stony Brook University before being accepted into Juilliard's Historical Performance program. There he continued his studies with Peter Sykes, Richard Egarr and Beatrice Martin and performed under William Christie, Jordi Savall and others, on both harpsichord and baroque viola. He now resides in New York City where he continues to be an active performer.
