Steven Isserlis, cello
Connie Shih, piano

Acclaimed for unsurpassed musicianship, deep intellect, and personal warmth, British cellist Steven Isserlis features works by three significant male composers alongside the works of three less well-known, unfairly neglected women composers who influenced them—Clara Schumann to Robert Schumann; Vítezslava Kapralova to Bohuslav Martinu; Augusta Holmès to César Franck.

“Vivid drama, expressive phrasing and spontaneity…simply gorgeous” – Washington Post

NOTE: Steven Isserlis will sign CDs following the performance, in the States Gallery outside of the Terrace Theater.
