The 2021–22 season takes Mr. Armstrong across the globe with concerts throughout Europe, the U.S., Canada, and Australia. Last season, Mr. Armstrong and violinist James Ehnes released the complete cycle of Beethoven’s ten violin sonatas. The duo performed the cycle in concert over the past two years and will continue the project through 2022. Mr. Armstrong has released several acclaimed recordings, which feature works by Mussorgsky, Chopin, Liszt, Debussy, and the world premiere recording of Lisa Bielawa’s Wait. Mr. Armstrong is devoted to outreach programs and playing for children. In addition to his many concerts, his performances are heard regularly on NPR’s Performance Today and WQXR.
