The Must-See Classical Music Pairing of the Season!

“[Wang] can create the startling juxtaposition of a flashy young star… while evoking the legendary piano gods of old playing warhorse concertos.” – Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times

“[Capuçon is] the rare performer who can bring such ease and refinement to this music, while still giving everything he plays a sense of dramatic urgency.” San Francisco Chronicle

Incandescent pianist Yuja Wang returns in an exceptional duo alongside the dazzling French cellist Gautier Capuçon, her close friend and source of inspiration. One of the world’s finest performers celebrated for her keen musical insight and quicksilver versatility, Wang is an artist armed with the ability to challenge the status quo. Capuçon is acclaimed internationally for his deeply expressive musicianship and exuberant virtuosity. Their partnership promises consummate technical skills, inexhaustible creative imagination, unmatched artistry and charisma in abundance in this must-see recital of Chopin and Franck.

Chopin: Sonata in G minor, op. 65
Chopin: Polonaise brillante in C Major, op. 3
Franck: Sonata in A Major
