Virtual Performance: Augustin Hadelich, violin, and Joyce Yang, piano

Friday, May 15, 7:30 pm


Joyce Yang, piano, and Augustin Hadelich, violin

Join us online on May 15 for an encore performance of selected works from an outstanding International Artist Series concert from 2016, featuring Augustin Hadelich, violin, and Joyce Yang, piano. This audio recording will be available at 7:30 pm on Friday, May 15, and will remain available to listen to for a full week.

With a remarkable consistency throughout his repertoire—from Paganini to Adès—violinist Augustin Hadelich continually astonishes audiences with a phenomenal technique and poetic sensitivity seldom seen in a single artist. In fact, after his January, 2014 performance of the Beethoven violin concerto at Disney Hall, his uncanny blend of technical mastery and refreshing spontaneity prompted the Los Angeles Times to enthusiastically applaud his “pinpoint intonation and surprising turns of phrase.” Similarly, pianist Joyce Yang—who by just 29 years of age had already performed as soloist around the world—repeatedly dazzles audiences and critics alike with sheer technique, while simultaneously creating “moment after moment that surprises the listener with a bit of extra musical insight” (Aspen Times). A native of Seoul, South Korea, Yang took her first piano lesson when she was just four years old and entered the prestigious School of Music at the Korea National University of Arts just six years later at the age of 10. The Schubert Club is thrilled to present these two remarkable artists—gifted with extraordinary technical skills and innate artistry—together on the same stage as part of the International Artist Series.
