I Musici de Montréal and artistic director Jean-Marie Zeitouni will welcome young South Korean pianist Joyce Yang as the ensemble presents its first concert of the year at Bourgie Hall on February 12, 2015 at 8 p.m. The program will feature works celebrating Hungarian music as well as The Four Temperaments by German composer Paul Hindemith.
Ever since Joyce Yang distinguished herself at the 2005 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition – where, at 19, she was the youngest entrant in the competition – critics have consistently singled out the four qualities that have made her an exceptional performer: “vivid and beautiful playing” (The New York Times), “astonishing virtuoso with tremendous suggestive power and imagination (BBC Music Magazine). Accompanied by the musicians of I Musici de Montréal, Joyce Yang will give us a chance to hear The Four Temperaments, four surprise-filled movements for piano and strings that German composer Paul Hindemith created for legendary Russian choreographer Balanchine, who turned it into a magnificent ballet.
