Joining them are internationally-acclaimed French-Armenian violinist Chouchane Siranossian, who takes on Mansurian’s First Violin Concerto, and Italian virtuoso cellist and Tchaikovsky Competition winner Mario Brunello, who brings his considerable talents to bear in the composer’s Cello Concerto, "Ubiest Abel frater tuus?"
