Internationally-acclaimed German cellist Christoph Wagner and UR faculty pianist Joanne Kong bring their extraordinary musical passion to works by Debussy, Mendelssohn, Martinu and Paganini. From the sensitive timbres and grotesque characters of Debussy's groundbreaking sonata, to Mendelssohn's uplifting and profound masterpiece, to the sparkling virtuosity and joy of Martinu and Paganini—this program features the full spectrum of sound and inspiration of both the cello and piano.
