    Kathryn Stott

Yo-Yo Ma is one of the most renowned cellists of our time. Throughout his long and illustrious career, he has captivated audiences worldwide with his enchanting interpretations, impeccable technique, and great personal charisma, as well as his passionate commitment to music and its power to bring about good in the world. After Ma's concert with the Iceland Symphony Orchestra, audiences here have a unique opportunity to experience another side of this exceptional musician as he performs a colorful and captivating program for cello and piano with longtime collaborator Kathryn Stott. Internationally recognized as one of Britain's most versatile and imaginative pianists, the Washington Post wrote Stott is “every bit Ma's equal, playing with striking individuality.” Yo-Yo Ma and Kathryn Stott have collaborated successfully for many years, performing together in numerous concerts and recording award-winning albums. Their duo concert is a part of their ongoing European tour, which includes performances at the Barbican Centre, Konzerthuset Stockholm, Philharmonie Berlin, Herkulessal Munich, and Philharmonie de Paris. Past performances have taken them to the world's leading concert halls, such as Walt Disney Hall in Los Angeles and Carnegie Hall in New York.

The program for this unparalleled duo spans works from the nineteenth century to the twenty-first. It includes Dmitri Shostakovich's emotionally charged Cello Sonata and César Franck's Violin Sonata, one of the most popular violin sonatas of all time, which is equally charming in the version for cello and piano by the French cellist Jules Delsarte. Additionally, several beautiful and contemplative short pieces arranged for cello and piano will be performed.
