Vogt has won international accolades for his "immaculate technique and an
infallible musical thrust" (L.A. Times). Violinist Sarah Chang is
internationally recognized as one of classical musicís most captivating and
gifted artists. This year, the two young virtuosos join forces in their first
tour together. Following their concerts in North America, Lars Vogt and Sarah
Chang will tour in Europe, and will record the all-French program for EMI.

Last fall Vogt received great acclaim for his solo performances with the
Baltimore Symphony and for his solo debuts with the Cincinnati Symphony and
St. Paul Chamber orchestras. The Cincinnati Post wrote, "Vogt swept up the
audience with his poetry and pizzazz," and the Cincinnati Enquirer commented,
"[Vogtís] pianism was fresh and utterly convincingÖHe breathed life into
each phrase with an ear for sonority and color."

This pianist is relatively unknown to many. His Schubert sonatas recordings can compete with any other great recordings that most of us are familiar with. AndrewG
