The venerated Ivry Gitlis described Gian Paolo Peloso as “a true musician, of the highest quality as a soloist and chamber music performer, and a top-class violin teacher, whose practice honors our profession and its future.” Rachel Cheung was hailed by The Dallas Morning News as “a poet, but also a dramatist” displaying “the most sophisticated and compelling music-making.” These two musicians together on stage can only be described as magical. Featuring staples of the violin repertoire by Tartini, Respighi, Debussy, and Franck, this concert will delight and wow.
