Two towering musicians join forces for a unique selection of great works for cello and piano. Alban Gerhardt is equally adept at performing brand new music, underexplored repertoire and the classics of the standard literature. Anne-Marie McDermott is admired for her work as both a soloist and collaborative pianist. Including a wide range of 20th-century works, the program features original sonatas by Barber and Britten alongside a sprinkling of American vignettes that display the varied richness of the cello and piano repertoire.
