Two brilliant adventurers set out across an enthralling musical landscape whenstep onto the stage. This is how great artists play: with imagination, with attention to style, with flexibility of technique, and above all a great sense of being in love with the music.

The tour repertoire chosen by this intrepid duo offers a delicious survey of cello sonatas including Debussy’s sublime contribution to the genre. Nadia Boulanger’s tantalising and attractive Three Pieces will be performed, as well as music by American composer Samuel Barber, whose Sonata cellists love to play because ‘it lets the cello sing.’ Shostakovich’s Sonata takes audiences on an extraordinary emotional journey. Taking us up to the present day is a new work from a young Australian composer, Jakub Jankowski.
