Mozart and Friends

Byron Schenkman - portrait photo

Beloved classics for violin, cello, and four-hand piano. Works by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and two friends who inspired his work: Josephine Aurnhammer and Joseph Bologne. Featuring violinist Rachell Ellen Wong, cellist Nathan Chan, and pianists Joseph Williams and Byron Schenkman.

“[Nathan Chan’s] string tone is rich and dark-hued, his intonation is fearlessly precise, and his mastery of musical narrative unfolds with unerring clarity.”

— Joshua Kosman, Datebook: San Francisco Chronicle
