OUT NOW | VC Young Artist Kevin Zhu's "The Dvořák Album"

Released on Sony Classical, the album also features Jan Vogler, Juho Pohjonen, Matthew Lipman, Chad Hoopes, and Tiffany Poon


VC Young Artist Kevin Zhu recently released an album of chamber music works by Antonin Dvořák, titled The Dvořák Album.

Alongside colleagues Matthew Lipman (viola), Jan Vogler (cello), and Juho Pohjonen (piano), Zhu performs Dvořák's dramatic and vibrant Piano Quartet No. 2.

Zhu and Vogler are then joined by violinist Chad Hoopes for the Scherzo of Dvořák's Terzetto.

Vogler and Pohjonen also perform a cello-piano arrangement of the famous tune "Songs My Mother Taught Me," from Dvořák's Gypsy Songs. Rounding out the album is Dvořák's Piano Trio No. 4 "Dumky," which features pianist Tiffany Poon alongside Hoopes and Vogler.

"Release day!" Zhu wrote on social media. "So happy to share this with you all. Huge thank you to the Moritzburg Festival and Sony Classical for making this possible, and to my musical colleagues Jan Vogler, Matthew Lipman, and Juho Pohjonen for their untiring effort and moving music-making."
