About This Performance

Praised by the Cleveland Plain Dealer for his “inspired virtuosity,” pianist Orion Weiss joins the “consistently captivating” (Washington Post) Anna Polonsky in their PCMS duo-recital debut. With this extraordinary couple, the love on the bench leads deeper into the music. In a recent interview Weiss said of performing with his über-talented wife: “I think we are particularly good at playing four-hand works because of how much we like each other. We never mind sitting so close to each other for such a long period and bumping elbows all the time.”
