Extraordinary pianist Simon Tedeschi returns to the MDCH stage with violist and conductor Roger Benedict, performing evocative works by Debussy and Ravel. With transcriptions by Benedict of Debussy’s kaleidoscopic cello sonata and preludes, Ravel’s wistful and lyrical violin sonata, and brooding, melancholy Kaddisch, all works feature on their second collaborative album, due out in 2022.
