Legendary violinist and teacher Roman Totenberg is celebrated with this evening of chamber music that features one of his former students, Mira Wang, with chamber music partners Jan Vogler and Antti Siirala. Vogler’s modern representation of the German cello tradition has been recognized with numerous awards, including the European Cultural Prize and the Echo Klassik Award. First prize-winner at the Geneva International Competition, Wang has appeared as a soloist with leading orchestras, from the Staatskapelle Dresden to the Singapore Symphony. Antti Siirala is one of Finland’s top pianists and winner of first prizes at three international piano competitions, including the Leeds. He has appeared at Wigmore Hall, the Concertgebouw and the Lucerne Festival.
