Estimated Length: 
1 hour and 45 minutes including intermission
Program Notes: 

Dutch cellist Pieter Wispelwey has been called fearless for his ambitious programming, original interpretations and technical mastery.

He brings no less to this intimate performance in the Gildenhorn Recital Hall in an evening of cello sonatas from Debussy, Prokofiev and Poulenc as well as Stravinsky/Piatigorski’s "Suite Italienne".

Review by The Washington Post

The Dutch cellist, who switches easily between historically informed performance practice and the modern instrument, offered one of his gold-standard programs, this time focused on four major works from the years of the two world wars.
