Faculty Artist and Distinguished Alumni Recital Series: Lucille Chung, piano, with duo-pianist Alessio Bax

A solo and piano four-hands recital by alumna and faculty member Lucille Chung, an internationally acclaimed pianist and award-winning recording artist. The first half will feature Robert Schumann’s inspired and whimsical Fantasy Pieces, op. 12 and a selection from the fiendishly difficult Etudes by György Ligeti. In the second half she will be joined by her partner in life and on stage, Alessio Bax, also an SMU alum and faculty member, in a rendition of Igor Stravinsky’s Petrouchka, an exhilarating and colorful four-hands version of the complete ballet, and their own virtuosic arrangements of two tangos by Astor Piazzolla. Bax and Chung have recently released an acclaimed recording of music by Stravinsky, Brahms and Piazzolla on Signum Classics and will be performing their New York City duo debut within the Great Performers Series at Lincoln Center this season.
