For 50 years, James Buswell has lived a fascinating double life as a performer and a pedagogue. He has performed as solo violinist with virtually all the major orchestras in North America, and throughout Europe, Asia, South America and Australia. He is an equally esteemed pedagogue who held faculty positions at two of the most prestigious music schools in the US. He continues to give master classes around the world. His experiences give him a unique perspective on the peculiar conflicts and reinforcements of those two professions, and on what he sees as a growing crisis that threatens the very nature of art in our culture - in increasing presumption that numbers are more accurate than words or anything more related to the human spirit. Buswell is well-known as an engaging speaker and thoughtful knowledgeable musician.
