About This Performance

This concert is part of the Joseph & Marie Field String Recital Series.

Acclaimed worldwide for his profound musicianship and technical mastery, British cellist Steven Isserlis returns to our series for his first PCMS recital since 2005.

Kabalevsky: Cello Sonata in B-flat Major, Op. 71
Shostakovich: Cello Sonata in D Minor, Op. 40
Rachmaninov: Cello Sonata in G Minor, Op. 19
