Steven Isserlis is – without question – one of the greatest cellists performing today. One of only two living cellists in the Gramophone Hall of Fame (the other one is a little-known performer named Yo-Yo Ma), this is a man who never stops searching, reaching, and expanding his musical output. PUC is honored to have him make his long-awaited debut on the series, with a program that tells a tale of love and influence, juxtaposing works by female composers with those of the men they inspired. Join us for what promises to be a luminous night of music making and storytelling, with one of the leading lights of the art form.
IT'S A CELLOBRATION!
Isserlis is the latest in a distinguished line of cellists to bring their resonant tones to Richardson Auditorium. Previous performers include greats like Pablo Casals (1922), Jacqueline du Pré (1968), Mstislav Rostropovich (1963), and Yo-Yo Ma (1979).
