Description:

“Violinist James Ehnes and pianist Andrew Armstrong play together with an easy spark and suppleness that only old friends really can.”
The Guardian

James Ehnes and Andrew Armstrong conclude their survey of the complete Beethoven violin sonatas over two special performances. A favorite of many of the world’s most respected conductors, Grammy Award-winning violinist Ehnes has appeared with the Boston, Chicago, London, NHK, and Vienna symphony orchestras, among others. In the 2018-19 season, he made his debut with the London Philharmonic Orchestra at Lincoln Center. Pianist Andrew Armstrong has performed with such conductors as Peter Oundjian, Itzhak Perlman, Günther Herbig, Stefan Sanderling, Jean-Marie Zeitouni, and Stanisław Skrowaczewski. His chamber appearances have included the Elias, Alexander, American, and Manhattan String Quartets, as well as the Caramoor Virtuosi, Boston Chamber Music Society, Seattle Chamber Music Society, and the Jupiter Symphony Chamber Players.
