master recital : queyras and demenga

tonight’s concert from the piatigorsky international cello festival at USC. Narek Hakhnazaryan also played a pre-concert (Shostakovich Sonata and Tchaikovsky Pezzo Capriccioso)…but Thomas Demenga stole the show. Quirky, dead-on accuracy, and quite funny. That being said…Queyras gave an OUTSTANDING performance of Britten’s First Suite…stunningly beautiful. More tomorrow!
