Classical repertoire and contemporary music make for an irresistible combination in this concert by frequent collaborators Nils Mönkemeyer and William Youn. This German-Korean viola-piano duo presents a rich program juxtaposing intimacy and experimentation, the familiar and the unknown. Interwoven with pieces by Mozart, Schubert, and Brahms are compositions by Salvatore Sciarrino, Nadia Boulanger, Unsuk Chin, and Matthias Pintscher.
