In Memoriam: Yehonatan Berick
It is with a profound sense of grief that we share news of the passing of Yehonatan Berick on October 31st.
Yehonatan was a prodigiously gifted and accomplished musician. A fantastic violinist, violist and pedagogue, and one of our most frequent musical collaborators over the past several years.
His deep musicianship was matched by an incredible personal warmth and a stand-up comic’s sense of humor, to the delight of all around him.
We have created this YouTube playlist of some of the works in which he was featured in our ensemble, including a conversation recorded just this summer about Stravinsky’s A Soldier’s Tale in which he not only played brilliantly, but also narrated the title role.
Our condolences go out to his family, friends, colleagues, and many devoted students. His loss is too big for words.
