Jonah Kim and Sean Kennard reunite to perform pieces from their youth / New Classical Tracks

Bookmark and Share

For cellist Jonah Kim and pianist Sean Kennard, studying at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia was like being at Hogwarts. They were mesmerized by the spells they could cast every time they learned some new flashy technique. Two decades later, they've grown into musical wizards, and they just released their debut recording. It features the Sergei Rachmaninoff's Sonata for Piano and Cello and Samuel Barber's Sonata for Cello and Piano, two works they first performed while at Curtis.

JK: "We started hanging out. Rachmaninoff actually was the very first piece we played together. So, almost 20 years later, to record this together and especially to record this along with the Barber really makes this special for us."
