About This Performance

Lauded by Gramophone as “one of the finest among the astonishing gallery of young virtuoso cellists,” Johannes Moser debuts on the PCMS stage alongside the “consistently captivating” (Washington Post) Anna Polonsky. The program’s symmetry is not by chance; Webern’s Three Little Pieces balances the repertoire on either side of the concert, offering a palate cleanser—albeit one with its own quirky and fleeting tastes—between substantial works by Beethoven, Prokofiev, and Debussy.

Beethoven: Cello Sonata in C Major, Op. 102, No. 1
Webern: Three Little Pieces, Op. 11
Prokofiev: Cello Sonata in C Major, Op. 119
Debussy: Cello Sonata
Webern: Three Little Pieces, Op. 11
Beethoven: Cello Sonata in D Major, Op. 102, No. 2
