Now you see him, now you don't.
At the start of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's season, its former assistant concertmaster, Igor Yuzefovich, one of the ensemble's most dynamic players, was back onstage after a stint as concertmaster of the Hong Kong Philharmonic for about a season and a half.
It looked for a moment like he might be back to stay, especially given that he was also expected to perform on the Music in the Valley concert series a couple weeks ago with his old chamber group, the Monument Piano Trio. The trio went on hiatus when Yuzefovich took the Hong Kong job.
Turns out that the violinist was just passing through temporariliy. Yuzefovich has been appointed concertmaster of the Singapore Symphony Orchestra. (His Monument Piano Trio colleagues ended up performing a cello and piano program instead).
