Carte Blanche Concert IV

Romantic Voices

Violinist Danbi Um embodies the tradition of the great Romantic style, her natural vocal expression coupled with virtuosic technique. Partnered by pianist Orion Weiss, making his Music@Menlo debut, she offers a program of music she holds closest to her heart, a stunning variety of both favorites and delightful discoveries. Danbi Um will be joined by violinist Paul Huang for Sarasate’s Spanish Dances at the end of this program.
