“Kavakos’ virtuosity is stunning but not showy. He tosses off the most hair-raising pyrotechnics and sound effects…with ease and relish.” Strings

“[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

Recognized as a violinist and artist of rare quality, Leonidas Kavakos is known for his virtuosity, superb musicianship and the integrity of his playing. This fall, he joins forces with Yuja Wang, the Beijing-born pianist lauded for her charismatic artistry, captivating stage presence and “wizardly technique” (Chicago Tribune).
