About Augustin Hadelich and Joyce Yang:
Within months after being awarded the inaugural Warner Music Prize, Augustin Hadelich has just won a 2016 Grammy in the category "Best Classical Instrumental Solo" for his recording of the Dutilleux Violin Concerto, L'arbre des songes, firmly establishing him as one of the great violinists of his generation. His remarkable consistency throughout the repertoire, from Bach and Beethoven to Ligeti and Adès, is seldom encountered in a single artist.
Blessed with “poetic and sensitive pianism” (Washington Post) and a “wondrous sense of color” (San Francisco Classical Voice), pianist Joyce Yang captivates audiences with her virtuosity, lyricism, and interpretive sensitivity. As a Van Cliburn International Piano Competition silver medalist and Avery Fisher Career Grant recipient, Yang showcases her colorful musical personality in solo recitals and collaborations with the world’s top orchestras and chamber musicians.
