Two of the most sought-after recitalists on the international stage join forces as Canadian violinist James Ehnes and American pianist Orion Weiss return to Koerner Hall.

Known for his virtuosity and probing musicianship, James Ehnes has performed in more than 35 countries on five continents, appearing regularly in the world’s great concert halls and with many of the most celebrated orchestras and conductors. Gifted with a rare combination of stunning virtuosity, serene lyricism, and an unfaltering musicality, he has collaborated with leading artists such as Leif Ove Andsnes, Renaud Capuçon, Louis Lortie, Yo-Yo Ma, and Yuja Wang, among many others.

One of the most sought-after soloists in his generation of young American musicians, pianist Orion Weiss has performed with major American orchestras, including the Chicago Symphony, Boston Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, and New York Philharmonic. His deeply felt and exceptionally crafted performances go far beyond his technical mastery and have won him worldwide acclaim. Weiss is a recipient of the Gilmore Young Artist Award and an Avery Fisher Career Grant, and served as co-artistic director of the 2016 Laguna Beach Music Festival with violinist Jennifer Koh.
