“Bax and Chung are husband and wife, so it’s not surprising that their piano duets work so well. They share a brilliant clarity in their playing. In this scintillating recital, it’s hard to find even a fleeting moment where ensemble is less than meticulous.”
— The Sunday Times, London, November 2014
ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
December 17’s concert will highlight the pianistic partnership of Alessio Bax and Lucille Chung. Their musical marriage has been described as one “of wondrous colors and dextrous aplomb, subtly balanced to make a musical performance sound as one.” Their virtuosity, passion, and artistic chemistry will be on display in glittering duets by Mozart, Shostakovich, Lutoslawski, and Rachmaninoff.
