Violinist Leonidas Kavakos and pianist Yuja Wang, a pair of classical music superstars, will share Wharton Center’s Cobb Great Hall stage in this long-awaited performance at 8 p.m. , Saturday, Nov. 6. Tickets are on sale now at the official source to purchase Wharton Center tickets online, whartoncenter.com, at the Auto-Owners Insurance Ticket Office, or by calling 1-800-WHARTON.
Kavakos and Wang will have played Carnegie Hall two days before their Wharton Center appearance. Wang is known for her electric stage presence and breathtaking facility on the piano. Kavakos is admired for balancing clarity and expressive power in his lyrical playing. Megastar soloists rarely commit to long-term music relationships, which makes the pairing of these two giants of the concert hall even more thrilling, as they have refined their chemistry over several acclaimed tours and recordings.
The evening features the following program:
Bach: Violin Sonata No. 3 in E major, BWV 1016
Shostakovich: Violin Sonata in G major, Op. 134
Bach: Violin Sonata No. 1 in B minor, BWV 1014
Busoni: Violin Sonata No. 2 in E minor, Op. 36a
