Lux Aeterna: a Performance of Classical Music for the Violin

“His enthusiastic performance style has resulted, through appearances with numerous orchestras in Canada, USA and Germany, in his establishing himself as a renowned soloist. Today, he is continuously performing as a soloist and chamber musician in Germany and North America. In 2006 Mardon played over 40 concerts and recitals.

‘It is my intent to uplift the audience and to remind them of our transcendental nature of being. I try to choose pieces that inspire the listener to recognize their own greatness, to view their life from a new perspective and to ponder their dreams,” quoting Mr. Mardon’s website.

Co-sponsored by Yael & Steve Klein (this writer is chair of the Yelm Timberland Library Board).

  1. What an extraordinary evening of classical music as performed by Ian Mardon at our little Yelm Library last night.

    Mr. Mardon’s engaging stories preceding his music were both informative and entertaining.

    And the sounds coming forth from his 1775 Guadagnini violin were so passionate, so evocative!

    What a rare treat!

    Thank you, Mr. Mardon, Friends of the Yelm Library, the library staff (who were so patient as the concert went past closing), and to Yael and Steve Klein for bringing this treasure to us!
