Collin Carr, cello
Thomas Sauer, piano
The English cellist, Colin Carr, is no stranger to Winnipeg and it’s no mystery as to why he is so frequently invited back. One of the brightest stars of the Agassiz International Cellofest, “His infectious joy and ability to communicate seemingly every shade of emotion in whatever he is playing has consistently led to roaring standing ovations.” (Holly Harris, Winnipeg Free Press). His playing is “full of poetry and subtlety” (Gazeta Wuborcza, Lublin, Poland) and can achieve the spiritual heights of what Stephan Bonfield called “the transportatively transcendental” (Calgary Herald).
Colin Carr has played around the globe with his regular duo partner, pianist Thomas Sauer, and Virtuosi Concerts is honoured to present them both on our stage.
