The brilliant Van Cliburn Silver Medalist, Yakov Kasman, returns to Colorado in a Duo-Piano Recital with his talented, young 16-year-old daughter, Aleksandra Kasman, in a program that includes works by Schubert, Medtner,
and the orchestral Symphonic Dances for Two Pianos by Sergei Rachmaninov.

In 2007 he completed a four-CD set of the chamber music of Shostakovich with the Talich Quartet. His upcoming engagements include performances with National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine, Dayton Philharmonic, Louisiana Philharmonic, KBS Orchestra in Seoul, and a performance with Orchestre Lamoureux at the Theatre de Champs Elysees in Paris, France as well as masterclasses and recitals in Japan.
