On September 18, 19 & 22, Yuja Wang performs at the first-ever Tsinandali Festival in Georgia. For the first concert, Yuja is joined by clarinetist Martin Fröst for a chamber concert with works including von Weber’s virtuosic Grand Duo Concertante, Brahms’ richly-textured Clarinet Sonata in E-flat Major and his Hungarian Dances Nos. 1, 13, and 21.
