Augustin Hadelich won the 2016 Grammy for 'Best Classical Instrumental Solo'. He also debuted with the Chicago and Pittsburgh symphonies, at the Ravinia Festival, and with the London Philharmonic on recording. Return engagements included Carnegie Hall, London’s Wigmore Hall, and Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, plus the London Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, and the symphonies of Atlanta, Cincinnati, and Detroit.  Hadelich’s chamber music partners have included Jeremy Denk, James Ehnes, Richard Goode, Midori, Vadim Repin, Joyce Yang, and members of the Guarneri and Juilliard quartets.

At just 19, Joyce Yang won the silver medal at the 12th Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, plus 'Best Performance of Chamber Music' (with the Takàcs Quartet) and 'Best Performance of a New Work'. She made her New York Philharmonic debut under Lorin Maazel in 2006 and has since performed with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Philadelphia Orchestra; the Chicago, San Francisco, Sydney, and Toronto symphonies; and in recital at Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center, and Chicago’s Symphony Hall.  

Beethoven’s G Major Sonata for Violin and Piano was finished in 1802. That year, he admitted that he was going deaf and had suicidal thoughts. Yet, the Sonata is full of warmth and humor.
Brett Dean was a Berlin Philharmonic violist from 1985 -1999 and Artistic Director of Melbourne’s National Academy of Music until 2010. In 2013, the Berlin Philharmonic premiered his 'The Last Days of Socrates'.
The last of six sonatas Mozart composed during 1777-1778, Alfred Einstein called the D Major Sonata, 'a great concert sonata'.
Stravinsky’s 1928 ballet, 'The Fairy’s Kiss', is based on Hans Christian Andersen and commemorates the 35th anniversary of Tchaikovsky’s death. It incorporates interpretations of the latter’s works. Much of the score was then transcribed for violin and piano, which later became the Divertimento.
Tchaikovsky wrote the Valse-Scherzo in 1877. It is believed that he first wrote the arrangement for violin and piano, which was then arranged for violin and orchestra.
