Shaw Pong Liu, Violinist and Composer, with Leo Eguchi, Cello, and Nick Tolle, percussionist and cimbalom player at the Loring-Greenough House on March 17, 2013
Sunday March 17, 2013, at 3:00 p.m.,Shaw Pong Liu, Violinist and Composer, with Leo Eguchi, Cello, and Nick Tolle, percussionist and cimbalom player, will present One to Three, a program that explores the world of solos and duets, with a twist of trio, at the Loring-Greenough House, 12 South St, Jamaica Plain MA, as part of the Sunday Afternoon at the ‘Greenough House parlor concert series.
From solo violin musings on sunrises and birds, to succinct and entrancing duets for cimbalom and violin, to luscious, Hungarian folk-influenced Kodaly duo for cello and violin, the program will explore the world of solos and duets, with a twist of trio. Savoring traditional repertoire favorites, interwoven with improvisation and new compositions, Shaw Pong Liu, violinist and composer, performs with Nick Tolle on cimbalom (traditional Hungarian hammered dulcimer) and cellist Leo Eguchi. The program will include works by Ysaye, Kurtag, Kodaly and Liu. Meet the Shaw Pong and Leo at afternoon tea following the program.
Violinist Shaw Pong Liu seeks to engage diverse communities with creative music and social dialogue by innovating the audience experience of live music. Collaborating with artists from a wide range of disciplines, Shaw Pong creates genre-defying performances which interplay written and improvised music with narration, storytelling and movement.
Her current project, A Bird a Day, is a daily creative exploration of dawns, birds, and music. Recent productions include Soldiers’ Tales Untold, a musical-narrative production mixing veterans’ stories, music, and audience dialogue about the long-term costs of war; Of a River, a live performance-installation transforming a three-story glass atrium with five dancers, six musicians, and 600 yards of silk in Dayton, OH; and The Ligeti Project, a series of performances with improvising string quartet unraveling the music of Hungarian composer Gyorgy Ligeti.
A native Californian, Shaw Pong is currently based in Boston, where she performs amplified and looped violin with young poets in the urban hip-hop slam poetry production, “ARTiculation” and . . . → Read More: Shaw Pong Liu with Leo Eguchi and Nick Tolle (Sunday, March 17)
