In the frame of the Portland Winter Light Festival 2019, the facade of the PSU library will become a canvas for the projected silhouette of different PSU music professors. Concurrently, on February 9, at 7 pm, inside PSU’s Lincoln Recital Hall, Dr. Tomas Cotik will present a solo violin recital presenting his latest project, a recording of Bach's Sonatas and Partitas for violin solo and selections of The Four Seasons by Antonio Vivaldi with Dr. Chuck Dillard.
Hailed by Michael Tilson Thomas as "an excellent violinist," Tomas Cotik was a first-prize winner at the National Broadcast Music Competition in his native Argentina in 1997. An avid recording artist, Dr. Cotik has recorded over 15 CDs, which have received over a hundred reviews and the highest praise from some of the best-known publications. Dr. Tomas Cotik was appointed Assistant Professor of Violin at Portland State University in 2016.
