Renowned for her flying fingers, pianist Yuja Wang is a vivid performer and dazzling virtuoso, amazing audiences with her controlled technique and authority over the most complex technical demands of performance repertoire.

Winner of the coveted 2014 Gramophone Artist of the Year Award, violinist Leonidas Kavakos has been praised by The New York Times for his "balance of pyrotechnics and lyricism." By age 21, Kavakos had already won three major international violin competitions: the Sibelius Competition in 1985, and the Paganini and Naumburg competitions in 1988.

Running time (approximate): 1 hour and 48 minutes
