Randall Goosby is an aristocrat of the violin. At the age of 13, he performed in the New York Philharmonic’s Young People’s Concert at Avery Fisher Hall, a performance the New York Times raved “exerted a masterly level of control and lavished an exquisite tone . . . [and] won him a deserved standing ovation for its sheer virtuosity.”

Goosby is the youngest recipient ever to win the Sphinx Competition. He makes his Gardner Museum debut, fresh from his 2018 First Prize in the Young Concert Artists International Auditions, playing on his Giuseppe Guarneri del Gesù of 1735, loaned by the Stradivari Society.
