Beethoven   Egmont Overture
Bruch   Violin Concerto No. 1 in G minor 
Dvořák   Cello Concerto in B minor

Bruch’s romantic and passionate Violin Concerto No. 1 is the perfect showcase for award-winning soloist Sarah Chang, recognized as one of the foremost violinists of our time. Grammy award winner Zuill Bailey, one of the premiere cellists today, performs Dvořák’s Cello Concerto in B minor, a late work of glorious beauty that has been called “the King” of cello concertos.

Violinist Sarah Chang’s “gifts are at a level so removed from the rest of us that all we can do is feel the appropriate awe and then wonder on the mysteries of nature.” - The New York Times

Zuill Bailey, a three-time Grammy winner, “is easily one of the finest cellists alive today."  - Classical Net
