About This Event

A combination of two brilliant soloists. “Nicolas Altstaedt is as an artist a category on its own.” (Hamburger Abendblatt) The German-French cellist is renowned worldwide for his creativity and versatility in captivating performances on both gut and modern strings. "Compelling.” (The New York Times) Born and raised in Turkey, Fazıl Say has been inspiring audiences and critics for more than 25 years with his extraordinary pianistic talents. His concerts are unique:  they are direct, open, exciting; in short, they go straight to the heart. “To put it mildly, Fazil Say is one of a kind … Say is a formidable and curious composer and performer, wholly capable of bringing freshness and a new light to music that we have heard many times before.” (Bachtrack)
