This Friday edition of the Young Artists Showcase presents a preview of the Carnegie debut of cellist Jay Campbell, a recent laureate of the Concert Artist Guild International Auditions. Campbell's session is bookended by performances of Richard Wagner from a recent concert by the Manhattan School of Music Pre-College Philharmonic. A few weeks ago we heard Wagner and Verdi from that same performance at Borden Auditorium on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.

Campbell is joined by pianist Connor Hanick, who also hosts the show Hammered! on Q2 Music, WQXR's online contemporary music stream. Campbell and Hanick take us through Stravinsky, Mozart (by way of Beethoven) and the Debussy Cello Sonata, all in preview of their March 10 recital at Carnegie’s Weill Hall.
