Tuesday, February 5, 2013, 8 p.m.
Oberlin graduates Steven Isserlis and Jeremy Denk team up on their old stomping grounds to present an unforgettable evening of masterful musicianship. Called “kindred spirits” by the New York Times, the duo unites Isserlis’ “staggering technical prowess, and a beautiful, ingratiating sound” with Denk’s “fleet fingers,” “broad tastes and personable virtuosity,” and are lauded by critics for their incredible energy and innovation in classical music.
“Isserlis can turn a single note into a smile or a lament.”
“[Denk] was the provocateur who urged his colleagues to dare all, to unleash every calorie of emotional heat”
