LEONARD ELSCHENBROICH AND
KONSTANTIN SHAMRAY

Sunday 29 November 2020  |  2:30PM


GERMAN INTELLECT, RUSSIAN FIRE

Described by The New York Times as ‘a musician of great technical prowess, intellectual curiosity and expressive depth’, German cellist Leonard Elschenbroich gave his Vienna Musikverein debut on a European tour with the Staatskapelle Dresden, and his US debut with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. He appears regularly at the Royal Albert Hall for the BBC Proms, and is a former member of the acclaimed Sitkovetsky Trio.

Leonard makes his debut at UKARIA with the winner of the 2008 Sydney International Piano Competition – Russian pianist Konstantin Shamray. In addition to sharing the same year of birth (1985), they both possess highly individual yet complementary artistic sensibilities – the perfect mix for sonatas by Brahms and Rachmaninov.
