Widely praised for her expressive and strikingly individual performances, Tamsin Waley-Cohen has performed as a soloist and chamber musician in many of the world’s great concert halls. An adventurous and prolific recording artist, her recent recording of Beethoven Violin Sonatas on the Signum Classics label has received widespread critical acclaim.
Described by the Boston Music Intelligencer as a “heroic piano soloist” with “stunning virtuosity”, American pianist George Xiaoyuan Fu has established an international reputation as a captivating musician with distinctive intelligence and sensitivity. Passionate about the creation of new work, he is also a composer and an avid performer of contemporary music.
