About

Leonidas Kavakos and Yuja Wang, a superstar duo at Carnegie Hall.

Violinist Leonidas Kavakos (the youngest winner of the Sibelius Violin Competition) and pianist Yuja Wang (star of the piano at only 27) are brilliant as soloists on the international stage. For a few months now, they have been giving concerts together around the world (including the live webcast from the Verbier Festival on medici.tv in August 2013) and have recorded a CD of Brahms sonatas for violin and piano, released by Decca in March 2014. In London, Robert Matthew-Walker wrote, "Wang is superb and Kavakos is violinistically impeccable, sustaining Brahms's lines perfectly with every note dead in tune [...] The result is a great performance."
