Synopsis

Winner of the Avery-Fischer Prize, twice nominated at the Grammy Awards in the “Best Performance with an Orchestra” category and already a faculty member at UCLA, Richard O’Neill remains the one and only viola player to have received an Artist Diploma from the Juilliard School in New York.

Peter Asimov, a talented pianist barely 23 years old, joins him for this exhilarating recital.

They perform Schumann’s Märchenbilder with incomparable sweetness before returning to their roots with a more contemporary piece by Carter. Finally, to close the recital, they tackle a Schubert sonata with astonishing energy.
