The Dynamic Duo is Aptly Named

ONE DYNAMIC DUO – Bates Rectal Hall October 7th, 2009-Butler School of Music –  University of Texas-Austin

Bion Tsang (cellist) and Anton Nel (pianist)

Anton Nel and Bion Tsang

Whether it was the gorgeous chordal surprises of Barber, the playful and percussive folk melodies of  Prokofiev or the lyrical sounds of Grieg, this dynamic duo executed this challenging program with ease and artistry.  Tsang and Nel had a communication that seemed mostly telepathic.

When the audience, on their feet, refused to leave Bates Recital Hall, it was rewarded with a couple of crowd-pleasers as encores — “The Swan” by Saint-Saens, and a Hungarian Dance by Brahms.

It is always a treat to hear two such superlative artists perform together.
