Beethoven Cello Sonatas: Celebrating Beethoven’s 250th
In a cello tour de force, Fung pays homage to Beethoven ‘s 250th birthday with two different all-Beethoven programs, each of which will feature some of the composer’s masterful Cello Sonatas, a staple of the cello repertoire that essentially depicts the entire life story of the famed composer. Happy Birthday Ludwig!
At age 19, cellist and Juilliard undergrad Zlatomir Fung already holds an armful of awards, including first prizes at the 2018 Schoenfeld International String Competition and the 2017 Young Concert Artists International Auditions. This past February, Fung made his recital debut at New York’s Merkin Concert Hall in a performance that brought a “tumult of cheers and applause” as well as critical acclaim for his “warmly resonant tone, gift for dynamic finesse, and a depth of feeling that seemed remarkable in one so young.”
“He’s one of the most brilliant cellists I’ve ever heard in my life.” - Richard Aaron, Juilliard
