When the brother-sister duo of cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason and pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason made their Carnegie Hall recital debut in 2019, The New York Times praised Sheku as a “gifted, sensitive artist” and Isata as a “superb collaborator.” Witness this talented pair in an eclectic program that spans a late sonata by Ludwig van Beethoven to the powerfully expressive music of 20th-century composers Dmitri Shostakovich, Frank Bridge, and Benjamin Britten.
