February 13, 2018, 9:00 am

Gary Hoffman is one of the outstanding cellists of our time, combining instrumental mastery, great beauty of sound, and a poetic sensibility. On his latest album, he is joined by pianist Claire Désert in the two sonatas for cello and piano by Johannes Brahms. Hoffman says, “These sonatas are as inexhaustible and revelatory as the Beethoven sonatas or Bach suites; they’re absolutely on that level. It’s music of such truthfulness.”
