The San Francisco International Piano Festival closes its Vallejo run with a dazzling evening of virtuosity and poetry, juxtaposing classics and future classics. Eunmi Ko will present the US premiere of “Timeless is Forever” by Girolamo Deraco, selections from Tyler Kline’s “Orchard”, and Vera Ivanova’s “Deep Heart’s Core” for piano and visual projection, before closing her portion of the program with Beethoven’s heavenly Sonata op.109.
After intermission, Jiyang Chen offers a tour-de-force, all-Liszt program including favorites like Liebestraum, Sonetto de Petrarca 104, Vallee d’Obermann, and the 12th Hungarian Rhapsody. Jiyang and Eunmi brought the house down at Berkeley’s Freight and Salvage last year, and they are excited to share their music with the audience in Vallejo!
“He is without question one of the most brilliant pianists I have ever taught and heard.”
