“MALIBU MAN” is the official autobiography of the legendary first young virtuoso of the viola…Alan de Veritch. Making his first of many solo appearances with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra at the age of 13, by age 17 he had already collaborated in chamber music performances with such artists as: Jascha Heifetz, Gregor Piatigorsky, Josef Gingold, Pinchas Zukerman, and Itzhak Perlman to name but a few.
By age 32, Alan de Veritch had exchanged his life as an internationally known concert and recording artist for what was to become that of an extremely successful businessman, community leader, guest speaker, author and world-renowned musical pedagogue.
This autobiography clearly describes the background and many aspects of his amazingly unique existence from age 5 to present times while it comfortably guides its readers on a most enjoyable and informative journey through the highly eventful life of this truly extraordinary individual.
“ALAN DE VERITCH TRIBUTE WEEKEND!!”
I am thrilled and so proud to have just received confirmation from Brigham Young University and the Primrose International Viola Archive of their intent to host and present a very special “70th Birthday Tribute Weekend” in my honor!
To be held on September 22 & 23, 2017 on the campus of BYU in Provo, Utah, this celebratory event will include a most unique recital featuring three of my former students, violists James Dunham, Nokuthula Ngwenyama, and Paul Neubauer. Additionally, the festivities will include a masterclass and panel discussion presented by these fine artists as well as an extensive exhibit highlighting many of the items from my PIVA collection, to be preceded by an official dedication of the collection.
I am hopeful that many of my former students and colleagues will find this unique viola event to be the perfect catalyst for your long overdue pilgrimage to Provo and the Primrose Archive. Please save the date and I promise more details will follow in the near future. Click here for more information.
