Exciting Finnish piano soloist Juho Pohjonen joins Wu Han in Schubert’s piano duet Fantasie in F minor, and also plays the Wanderer Fantasy.  Of a recent performance, the New York Times lauded Pohjonen’s “pearly touch, singing tone and sensitivity”.  American violinist Benjamin Beilman, who wins regular praise for his passionate performances and deep rich tone, continues the fantasy theme playing Schubert’s Fantasy in C major.  The vocal portions of the program are performed by Twin Cities favorite, Clara Osowski, mezzo soprano, whose recent prizes at song competitions at Wigmore Hall and at the International Das Lied Competition in Heidelberg, Germany have launched her on an international solo career.
