Cat No:





Grammy Award-winning violinist Augustin Hadelich is one of the most impressive musicians of his generation. Pianist Joyce Yang, youngest ever medalist of the Van Cliburn Competition, is a consistently electrifying presence on stage. Together these young artists produce a plethora of pyrotechnics and an abundance of musical imagination. This unique recital program pairs two 19th-century repertory staples – Sonatas by Franck and Schumann – with 20th-century fare by Kurtág and Previn, a combination Augustin and Joyce have performed to widespread acclaim in their frequent joint performances.

critical acclaim for Augustin Hadelich and Joyce Yang
“the playing was world class … The musical highlight of the evening was the Schumann Sonata No. 1, the moiling romantic passion perfectly caught.” – The Washington Post

“one of the best classical performances of the year. Hadelich and Yang are both exciting young musicians, and their recital was a tour de force.” – TheaterJones, Dallas
