Two gifted artists of the international music scene, Leonidas Kavakos and Yuja Wang, are joining forces to perform violin sonatas and Brahms piano. Their concert will take place on Tuesday 14 October 2014 at the Athens Concert Hall. The two classical music stars presented sonatas for the first time at the 2013 Verbier Festival. Their album was released by Decca Classics in March. The concert in Athens will be the beginning of a major tour with concerts in Amsterdam, London, Madrid, Barcelona and cities in Canada and the USA. You can find more information on the Athens concert of Leonidas Kavakos and Yuja Wang on the website of the Athens Megaron Hall.
‘A strikingly vibrant and expressive partnership. The collaborative spirit shown by Kavakos and Wang has you gripped from the word go.

‘[Kavakos’s] sweet tone is matched by Wang who is admirably discreet in the more richly scored writing’
