We will keep you updated on new dates as soon as we have them.
Musikiwest at Mitchell Park Library in Palo Alto, California

This program is ravishingly beautiful. You will be treated to American Haiku by composer/cellist, Paul Wiancko. He will perform his own composition with his partner, violist, Ayane Kozasa who commissioned the work from him. Then the only thing better than one cello is….? Indulge yourselves in two of the most revered compositions featuring two cellos, Arensky’s Quartet #2 and Schubert’s beloved Quintet in C major. Returning to Musikiwest will be violinists Siwoo Kim and Tien-Hsin Cindy Wu, violist, Ayane Kozasa and joining me on cello and making his first appearance with us is my dear colleague, Paul Wiancko.
In cooperation with the City of Palo Alto
