Two world-class soloists combine for a powerhouse duo with international flair. Ilya Yakushev is known for his musical pyrotechnics on the piano, and Thomas Mesa is heralded as one of the most charismatic and engaging cellists of his generation. The two musicians joined together to form a duo of "equal footing" for a "great musical performance," showcasing core works from the classical cannon alongside pieces by the next generation of great composers.
