Cellist Joshua Roman, dubbed a "classical rock star" by The Seattle Times, teams with Grammy-nominated Lithuanian pianist Andrius Zlabys for a sonata by Schnittke, Stravinsky's Suite Italienne from the ballet Pulcinella and more. Town Hall's own artistic director and a protege of Yo-Yo Ma, Roman joined the Seattle Symphony Orchestra at age 22, becoming the youngest principal player in the symphony's history. Since then, he's wowed audiences worldwide with his vast repertoire, ranging from jazz and rock to classical sonatas and chamber music. Zlabys, a prize winner at the prestigious Cleveland International Piano Competition, is an international favorite who's performed on many of the world's great stages, including Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall.
