An Exceptional Pairing of Two Music Luminaries

Yuja Wang, piano
Leonidas Kavakos, violin

(2016/2017 Performing Arts)

Available on the Marquee series

“[Wang] eats the world’s greatest keyboard challenges for breakfast with one hand tied behind her back.” Los Angeles Times

“[Kavakos] is a fantastically accomplished player. He brings a shining and sweet tone to these works.” NPR

Pianist Yuja Wang and violinist Leonidas Kavakos come together in one of only a select few recitals across the nation for a night of superb technical virtuosity and emotional expression. Yuja Wang, “quite simply the most dazzlingly, uncannily gifted pianist in the concert world today” (San Francisco Chronicle) returns with her musical insight, fresh interpretations and charismatic power. Leonidas Kavakos, recently announced as the winner of the prestigious Léonie Sonning Music Prize, is an artist of rare quality known for his superb musicianship, the integrity of his playing and his “balance of pyrotechnics and lyricism” (The New York Times).
