Leonidas embarks on a major recital tour of Europe and the United States with Yuja Wang this January and February, beginning with a performance in Turin on 29 January 2017.
The programme for the tour includes Janáček Violin Sonata, Schubert Fantasia in C major, Debussy Violin Sonata in G minor and Bartók Violin Fantasia in C-sharp minor.
Leonidas and Yuja are regular recital partners, and their recording of Brahms Violin Sonatas, recorded for Decca in 2014, was widely acclaimed:
“A strikingly vibrant and expressive partnership. The collaborative spirit shown by Kavakos and Wang has you gripped from the word go.”
Editor’s Choice, Gramophone
“Quite magnificent … Kavakos is violinisticly impeccable, sustaining Brahms’s lines perfectly, with every note dead in tune … with deep intensity of feeling.”
