Renowned Canadian cellist Yegor Dyachkov and pianist Jean Saulnier present a program called Crossroads. It combines thoughtful musical substance and pleasure. Two short pieces by Martinu provide an artful conduit between Schumann’s heartfelt Adagio and Allegro and the world of Kapustin’s jazz and Piazzolla’s tango. Atonement by the internationally-renowned Canadian composer Christos Hatzis impressively fuses tango, jazz elements and a Jewish theme. Finally, profound emotion and sarcastic wit permeate expansive passages of Shostakovich’s Sonata, a great masterpiece of the chamber music repertoire.

R. Schumann: Adagio and Allegro Op. 70; B. Martinu: Ariette in ragtime/jazz style; Kapustin: Two jazz pieces: Nearly Waltz, Burlesque; B. Martinu: Arabesque in tango style; A. Piazzolla: Le grand tango; Ch. Hatzis: Atonement (written for Y. Dyachkov); D. Shostakovich: Sonata Op. 40.
