Encounters: with the Music of Our Time presents Gloria Cheng, piano
Works by Esa-Pekka Salonen, John Adams, Terry Riley, Andrew Waggoner, Stephen Jaffe, and others, including premiere performances of works written for Ms. Cheng by Duke composition fellows Huijuan Ling and Jason Mulligan. Grammy and Emmy Award-winning pianist Gloria Cheng has long been devoted to a process of creative collaboration, having worked extensively with such internationally renowned composers as John Adams, Terry Riley, Thomas Adès, and the late Steven Stucky. She has appeared as a concerto soloist with the Los Angeles Philharmonic under Zubin Mehta and Pierre Boulez, and on its acclaimed Green Umbrella series with Esa-Pekka Salonen and Oliver Knussen. This concert is part of an artist residency that includes readings/recordings of Ling's and Mulligan's works on Sept. 21. It is made possible with the support of the Mary Duke Biddle Foundation, the Office of the Vice Provost for the Arts, the University of South Carolina School of Music, and the College of Charleston.
