Jonathan Swensen, cello and Adam Golka, piano (Classical)

See website

Rising star of the cello Jonathan Swensen is the recipient of the 2022 Avery Fisher Career Grant and was recently featured as both Musical America’s ‘New Artist of the Month’ and ‘One to Watch’ in Gramophone Magazine.  Jonathan first fell in love with the cello upon hearing the Elgar Concerto at the age of six, and ultimately made his concerto debut performing that very piece with Portugal’s Orquestra Sinfónica do Porto Casa da Música.

Jonathan has captured First Prizes at the 2019 Windsor International String Competition, 2018 Khachaturian International Cello Competition, and the 2018 Young Concert Artists International Auditions in 2018.

Polish-American pianist Adam Golka first performed all of Beethoven’s 32 Piano Sonatas when he was 18 years-old, and he returned to the complete cycle in 2020-2021 for performances in NYC, Orlando, and Houston. He also presented all-Beethoven live streams for presenters in Ventura, CA, El Paso, TX, Sitka. AL, Spokane, WA and the Library of Congress during the COVID shutdowns. Adam’s performances and presentations were complemented by 32 short films he created, known as ’32@32′ featuring not only conversations with musical legends such as Alfred Brendel and Leon Fleisher, but also extra-musical discussions such as those with an astrophysicist, philosopher, magician, painter, and a child, to name only a few. As a concerto soloist, Adam has appeared as soloist with dozens of orchestras. Adam resides in New York City and serves as an Artist-Teacher of Piano at the Longy School of Music of Bard College in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
