At best it’s unbeatable.’ This is BBC Music Magazine’s review of the combination of cellist Steven Isserlis and pia- nist Robert Levin. The Herald (Scotland) writes: ‘Levin is an asto- unding communicator. Sometimes he says a lot; sometimes very little. But what he does and says is gold dust.’ He has completed some of Mozart’s unfinished works, including his Requiem. Grammy-nominated Isserlis is internationally acclaimed as a soloist, chamber musician, edu- cator and author. He has a broad repertoire and a characteristic playing style, and champions authentic performances of both older works and contemporary music.
