The first American in three decades and youngest musician ever to win First Prize at the International Tchaikovsky Competition (considered by many to be the “Olympics of classical music”) in the Cello Division, Zlatomir Fung is poised to become one of the preeminent cellists of our time. In a first for Sarasota, Fung and pianist Angie Zhang pay homage to Beethoven’s 250th birthday with two distinct programs covering the composer’s complete works for cello and piano. Artist Series Concerts of Sarasota presents cellist Fung, the first of three rising young stars coming from Young Concert Artists International. As a chamber musician, Fung performs around the world, opening this season with IMS Prussia Cove on tour to London’s Wigmore Hall, Cornwall, Cambridge, West Sussex, and Somerset. He closes the season at Dresdner Musikfestspiele. His April recital in New York at the Morgan Library made the New York Times "10 Months of Classical Concerts You Won't Want to Miss!" 

“Zlatomir Fung is an astoundingly gifted young cellist and is already being hailed by many as the next Yo-Yo Ma,” says Joseph Holt, Director of Artist Programs for Artist Series Concerts. “This is a real coup for us, and for Sarasota, to have Zlatomir and Angie here from Young Concert Artists International performing the complete body of Beethoven’s works for cello and piano. This is truly a one-of-a-kind opportunity to hear a rare, challenging and transcendent program performed by a young musician on the cusp of major stardom.”

The two performances, sponsored by Artist Series Concerts FRIENDS, take place on November 2, 7:30pm and November 3, 3pm at the Historic Asolo Theater, 5401 Bay Shore Rd., Sarasota. Tickets are $25 - $45. Those interested in purchasing tickets for both performances can call 941-306-1202 to receive a 15% package discount.
