Violinist Remus Azoitei and pianist Eduard Stan are based in London and Hanover, respectively, but both were born in Romania. They've performed together for many years, and most recently they released the world premiere recordings of the complete works for violin and piano by George Enescu. The Romanian Cultural Institute presents Enescu-Brahms: European Encounters, in which Azoitei and Stan will perform sonatas by both composers at the Kennedy Center Terrace Theatre on Wednesday, December 9, 2009. They stopped by the WETA studios to talk to Marilyn Cooley about the challenges and rewards of Enescu and Brahms.
