REBELS AGAINST TIME: The Tides of Romanticism
Duo Kleinhapl & Woyke, Cello and Piano
Some rebels, such as Beethoven and Piazzolla, forge far ahead into the future and are the revolutionaries against tradition. Others – such as Mendelssohn and Jacob Gade – firmly entrench themselves in esteemed
musical traditions. This program features the awardwinning duo of Austrian cellist Friedrich Kleinhapl and pianist Andreas Woyke, who will perform sonatas by Mendelssohn, Beethoven and Franck and tangos by
Gade and Piazzolla. The New York Times describes the “unimpeachable virtuosity and a thrilling unanimity of spirit” of the Duo Kleinhapl & Woyke. This celebrated duo has appeared in renowned concert venues around
the world including Vienna’s Musikverein and the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.
