About This Performance

Internationally recognized as a unique voice on the viola, Kim Kashkashian is an artist who combines a probing, restless intellect with enormous beauty of tone. For her first PCMS recital since 2015, the Grammy Award winner is joined by her long-standing duo partner, Robert Levin, for a performance of repertoire originally written for other instruments. The program culminates in Kashkashian’s version of Stravinsky’s neoclassical masterpiece Suite Italienne, a show-stopping addition to the repertory of modern viola music.
