David Nachmanoff: Guitarist, Violinist, Philosopher


Dave Nachmanoff's range of skills include guitar, violin, accordion and other instruments. But the signature behind Nachmanoff's music is not what he uses to play music; it's how he plays.

In his latest album, "Spinoza's Dream," Nachmanoff utilizes concepts from different philosophers for each track, including Kant, Camus, Sartre, Kierkegaard, Aristotle and Leibniz.

Nachmanoff has played onstage with folk legend Al Stewart, whose longtime band played in "Spinoza's Dream."

You can listen to the album here. Nachmanoff is set to play at the Geery Theater in Midtown Sacramento on July 9.

Below is a live performance of Dave Nachmanoff playing "The Painter" from album "Spinoza's Dream" in studio.
