Zoltán Kodály’s duo for violin and cello is a masterpiece that showcases the two instruments in their most glorious forms, as the ultimate virtuosos and as communicators of folk musical language. The freedom and energy that flows through the entire piece is irresistible.How we help

A dominant figure in Hungarian music, Dohnanyi is regarded as the most versatile musician to emerge from that country since Franz Liszt. His compositional style is a delicious mix of Richard Strauss’s tone poems and Sergei Rachmaninov’s symphonies. This sextet was his last large scale chamber music, in which we are featuring two amazing guest artists, CSO (horn) Oto Carrillo and (viola) WeiTing Kuo.How we help
