VC Young Artist Kerson Leong performing Jean-Marie Leclair’s Sonata No. 5 for 2 violins … with himself.
“I came across an alleged Chopin quote that said ‘Nothing is more beautiful than a guitar, except, possibly two’ …” Kerson has told The Violin Channel.
“I think the idea of two also applies to the violin and Leclair being a great example of the purity which can result from it … that in the moments where the two violins are really in sync, the sound can meld into an almost ethereal whole …” he has said.
“So I thought that was a fun little thing to do.”
