A meeting of true musical minds, Cho-Liang Lin and Jon Kimura Parker make a stellar duo, radiating what’s been described as ‘joyful rapport’: they love playing together, and so we love to hear them. Spectacular virtuosi, they have outstanding careers as soloists, based in North America. But there’s more – alongside the technical wizardry, each is a busy teacher, mentor to emerging artists, and artistic director of festivals and competitions; and they’ve enlarged the repertoire with numerous commissions. Chamber music is vitally important to them, not least in this recital partnership of more than a decade.
