Join us for an evening of iconic cello music from around the world as pianist Yi-Fang Wu and cellist Jeff Li take you on a world tour from Russia to Europe and the United States. Jeff Li studied with Hans Jensen and received his bachelor's of music from Northwestern University, where in 2011 he won the concerto competition playing Prokofiev's Sinfonia Concertante. When Jeff isn't practicing cello or performing, he likes to spend his free time masquerading as a software engineer hacking code at Google Inc. Yi-Fang Wu is currently the staff pianist at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.
Please arrive at 7:30 - Music begins at 8:00. NOTE: PARK ON WESTMINSTER - THE NEAREST CROSS STREEET - PARKING IS VERY LIMITED ON WINDSOR.

Just wondering: Shostakovich Concerto #1, or #2?

We will play the entire Shostakovich concerto No.1 in E-flat Major, Op.107!

I've listened to classical music a lot, but I think the piece I've listened to the most times (like, 100+) is this concerto. The first time this was played was in piano/cello format, with DSCH and Rostropovich. Three or four days after sending Rostropovich the score, Shostakovich went to him for a read-through and went to get a music stand. Rostropovich told him it was not needed and wrote that was the proudest moment of his life.
