Andrew McIntosh
Andrew McIntosh is a Grammy-nominated violinist, violist, composer, and baroque violinist who teaches at the California Institute of the Arts, with a wide swath of musical interests ranging from historical performance practice of the Baroque and Classical eras to improvisation, microtonal tuning systems, and the twentieth-century avant-garde.

As a solo artist he has performed at the San Francisco Symphony’s SoundBox series, Miller Theatre in New York, REDCAT, and festivals and concert series across Europe and the U.S. As a chamber musician, he is a member of Wild Up, the Formalist Quartet, and Wadada Leo Smith’s RedKoral Quartet. As a baroque performer, McIntosh is a member of Tesserae and Bach Collegium San Diego, has served as guest concertmaster for baroque operas with LA Opera and Opera UCLA, and was recently both music director and concertmaster of Long Beach Opera’s all-Handel pastiche production THE FEAST. Most recently, he performed the complete Rosary Sonatas of Heinrich Biber with Tesserae, and his recording (with Steven Vanhauwaert) of the Three Sonatas for Violin and Fortepiano, op. 1b) of Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges was released in November 2023 on Olde Focus Records.

As a composer he often works with forms and ideas found in nature or in other artistic disciplines, and was described by Alex Ross in The New Yorker as “a composer preternaturally attuned to the landscapes and soundscapes of the West.” Recent commissions include works for the LA Philharmonic, Calder Quartet, Yarn/Wire, Vicki Ray, and violinists Movses Pogossian, Lorenz Gamma, and Ilya Gringolts.

About The Henry J. Bruman Summer Chamber Music Festival

Ambroise Aubrun, D.M.A., Artistic Director

The festival was founded in 1988 by Professor Henry J. Bruman (1913–2005), who sought to introduce new audiences to chamber music at informal concerts on the UCLA campus. The festival is made possible by the Henry J. Bruman Trust, Professors Wendell E. Jeffrey and Bernice M. Wenzel, by a gift in memory of Raymond E. Johnson, and with the support of the UCLA Center for 17th-& 18th-Century Studies.
