Noted pianist and Curtis faculty member Hugh Sung will perform my Vernacular Dances, along with Mussorgsky’s enormously challenging original version of Pictures at an Exhibition and Chopin’s G Major Ballade in his Visual Recital format at Philadelphia’s Woodmere Art Museum (9601 Germantown Ave.) at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 30. Tickets are $10. Call 215-247-4076 for more information.
Hugh and I initially ‘met’ on the internet, but serendipitously had the chance to finally meet in person when I was back in New York this past May. Not only is Hugh a champion of new music and wonderful interpreter, he is also a technophile and prolific blogger. Do visit his website to learn more about Hugh, his Visual Recital concept, and his experience with incorporating and embracing technology.
