Master Players’ popular Gold Medalists mini-series has brought many top competition winners to Delaware. This season, preeminent American cellist Zlatomir Fung will perform on the Delaware stage two weeks after his historic Carnegie Hall debut. In 2019, Fung became the first American in four decades and the youngest cellist ever to win First Prize at the International Tchaikovsky Competition. A 2020 awardee of an Avery Fisher Career Grant, Fung’s virtuosity and sensitivity as a performer have launched the 22-year-old to the forefront of the cello world.
World renowned collaborative pianist Rohan de Silva will join Fung for a program that includes pieces by Beethoven, Shaporin, Popper, Liszt, and Grieg. Originally from Sri Lanka, De Silva is on the faculty of the Juilliard School and is the long-time pianist of Itzhak Perlman and many other virtuoso string players worldwide.
