Washington Performing Arts Virtuoso Series
Steven Isserlis, cello & Robert Levin, fortepiano

Rare amongst his counterparts, British cellist Steven Isserlis uses historically accurate gut strings which produce rich, complex sounds, perfect for his program of Beethoven sonatas with Robert Levin on the also historically accurate fortepiano. Writes the Plain Dealer, "Isserlis is a matchless virtuoso.... His Olympian talent connected the audience directly with the mind and heart of Beethoven, in a kind of musical séance."

Performance Timing: Part One - 41 min.; Intermission - 15 min.; Part Two - 36 min. 

Note: Steven Isserlis and Robert Levin will sign CDs following the performance, in the States Gallery outside of the Terrace Theater.
