Xavier Foley

“A musician who hears borders between styles as limitation best ignored.”

The Philadelphia Inquirer

One of the most electrifying stars in the next generation of musicians, Avery Fisher Career Grant and Sphinx Competition winner bassist Xavier Foley join us for his solo debut on a major New York City stage. Foley is a once-in-a-generation talent who can take an instrument like the double bass and—through the sheer force of his artistry—make it a gorgeous, singing, solo instrument. Hear him bring lyricism and poetry to a Bach cello suite, pyrotechnics to a double bass showpiece (Gliere’s Tarantella), and his gifts as a composer to his own playful and virtuosic Irish Fantasy, a piece that crosses genres and radiates joy.
