A recent top prizewinner in the George Enescu International Cello Competition and Beverly Hills National Auditions, Evnin Rising Star alumna cellist Sarah Rommel is indeed a star on the rise. She has been the recipient of several awards and grants, including the Jack Kent Cooke Young Artists Award, which led to a subsequent appearance on NPR’s From the Top. Pianist Xiaohui Yang joins Rommel for a varied program that pairs cello works from neighboring Germany and Czechoslovakia, including Martinů’s brooding variations on a Slovak theme and Beethoven’s delightful variations on Papageno’s aria from Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte.
