Violinist Danbi Um's playing possesses a distinctly old-world sound reminiscent of early recordings by Jasha Heifetz and Fritz Kreisler, exhibiting an ability to deftly balance the emotional content of music with an impeccable sense of form and technique. Um makes her debut at the Phillips with returning-artist Amy Yang, a world class collaborative pianist who excels across all forms of the chamber music repertoire.

The duo presents a suite of iconic works from the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries. The first half features Bedřich Smetena's two-movement work for violin and piano, From the Homeland, and Ernest Bloch's Violin Sonata No. 2, Poème mystique. Um and Yang complete the program with Edvard Grieg’s Violin Sonata No. 2 in G major, Op. 13, and Maurice Ravel's Tzigane, a tour de force that exemplifies the spirit of the violin and the instrument's roots in folk tradition.
