Pianists Sang-Hie Lee and Martha Thomas with Kyoungha Cho, Narrator, will perform Celestial Phenomena by Gerald Chenoweth, Daniel Perlongo's Windhover for Piano Duo and Lewis Nielson's “...Aber jetzt Die Nacht...” as well as works by Paul Reller and Eun Hye Park.
The Piano Duo project attempts to establish aesthetic concept of Ars Nostra (our arts) with the emphasis on bringing new music to center stage with ethnographic sentiments, aesthetic nuances, colors and multi-arts collaboration. Through Ars Nostra piano duo concerts and CD project, we hope to share and promote our talented colleagues’ creativity to a wider audience.
Sang-Hie Lee is an innovative performer-researcher-teacher. She is the founder of Ars Nostra, an artistic concept that promotes and performs new music by international colleagues and contemporaries. Lee and Dr. Martha Thomas, Professor of Piano at Hugh Hodgson School of Music of the University of Georgia are currently championing new music for two pianos by renowned composers Gerald Chenoweth, Daniel Perlongo, Lewis Nielson, Eun Hye Park and Paul Reller in a concert tour and CD production by PARMA LLC to be released in 2016.
