In the studio: Two of Austin's "Busiest Virtuosos" perform for In Context

As part of KLRU’s commitment to presenting local art to Central Texas, In Context will tape a performance by two notable musicians and we’d like for you to join us as part of the studio audience on Feb 22. RSVP here

The Austin American-Statesman calls cellist Bion Tsang and pianist Anton Nel “two of Austin’s busiest virtuosos,” and their newest live CD, featuring Brahms Sonatas for Cello and Four Hungarian Dances, is the latest chapter in their two-decade musical kinship.

To celebrate this new CD, available on Feb. 23 from Artek Recordings, Bion and Anton will be taping a performance for KLRU’s In Context on Monday, Feb 22, at KLRU’s Austin City Limits studio. The duo has selected some of their favorite pieces for cello/piano from Brahms, Boccherini, Grieg, Rachmaninov and Shostakovich.
