Concert with Leonidas Kavakos, violin and Yuja Wang, piano at Strathmore

Tue, Feb 7,2017  8pm
The Music Center at Strathmore (North Bethesda, MD)


JANÁČEK - Sonata, JW 7/7
SCHUBERT - Fantasia in C Major, D 934
DEBUSSY - Violin Sonata in G Major, L. 140
BARTÓK - Violin Sonata No. 1 in C-sharp minor, Sz. 75, BB 84

Visually, this star duo is a study in opposites: she slight yet fiery, he tall and brooding. But the frequent partners, who performed together at the 2013 Verbier Festival, soon followed by an acclaimed recording, are a perfect musical pairing. “When they play together, said the Financial Times, “they sound like a single organism.” Known for his “balance of pyrotechnics and lyricsm” (New York Times), Kavakos joins Wang, “quite simply the most dazzlingly, uncannily gifted pianist in the concert world today” (San Francisco Chronicle), for a rare joint recital.

“Kavakos is a spectacular artist.” - Philadelphia Inquirer

Wang possesses “a nonchalant, brilliant keyboard virtuosity that would have made both Prokofiev (who was a great pianist) and even the fabled Horowitz jealous.” - Los Angeles Times
