Ben Sayevich
Ben SayevichLithuanian-Israeli violinist Ben Sayevich began his studies at the Churlonis School for the performing Arts in Vilnius. He has performed extensively throughout North America, Europe and the Far East, and has appeared on radio and television as a soloist and chamber musician. His teachers have included Felix Andrievsky, Dorothy Delay, and Eric Rosenblith. He is a recipient of the prestigious Artist Diploma from the New England Conservatory, where he was the teaching assistant to Mr. Rosenblith.

Sayevich is featured as the soloist in a recording of Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons,” with the Kansas City Chamber Orchestra. One of the most important works in his repertory is the Violin Concerto by Alban Berg, which he was chosen to play at the New England Conservatory’s celebration of the composer’s centenary. Sayevich’s interpretation carries the tradition that comes down directly from the composer, through his work on the piece with the late Louis Krasner, the commissioner, dedicatee and the violinist at the work’s premiere.

Sayevich’s posts have included the Concertmaster of the Kansas City Camerata and the Kansas City Chamber Orchestra, with whom he has made numerous concerto appearances, including Violin Concertos by Vieuxtemps, Glazunov, Mozart and Beethoven. He has taught at the Hartt School of Music from 1987 to 1992, the New England Conservatory in 1995, and the Yellow Barn Music Festival, in Vermont. Sayevich is violinist of the London-based Rosamunde Piano Trio, which has performed widely in England and Europe.
