Of his acclaimed Kennedy Center recital debut in January 2009, the Washington Post wrote, "Augustin Hadelich is in touch with the sunny side of a violin. He can dig in; he can probe; he can make the instrument bark when the music calls for it. But his default seems to be the warm lyrical joy of lilting melody."
Hadelich plays the 1723 "ex-Keisewetter" Stradivarius. For this concert, Hadelich will be joined by pianist Rohan de Silva--Itzhak Perlman's frequent collaborator--for sonatas by Beethoven, Poulenc, Zimmermann, and Brahms, as well as Sarasate's lively Zigeunerweisen.
