The real life marriage of two great concert pianists, Lucille Chung and Alessio Bax, has led to one of the best piano duos of their generation.
A musical love story, this powerful pair have appeared in the United Kingdom, Europe, China, Korea, Central America, USA, and Canada.
Connecting with audiences as a powerful onstage duo and couple, Bax and Chung are a perfectly balanced combination of unity and individual personalities.
On Wednesday, March 7, Bax and Chung will be presenting a unique form of music in Nakusp: dance piano on one piano with four hands, commonly known as piano duets.
The show starts at the Bonnington Arts Centre at 7:30 p.m., the fifth concert presented by the Arrow Lakes Arts Council as part of their 2011-12 season.
Bax and Chung have put together a delightful program of music inspired by dance that they will be performing in concert on the piano. Highlights include Dvorak’s Slavonic Dances, Stravinsky’s Petrouchka, Ravel’s Mother Goose Suite, and Tangos by Piazzolla, which the pair will waltz through on the black and white keys for the pleasure of the audience.
The Arrow Lakes Arts Council would like to thank True North for co-sponsoring this concert, and is also grateful to the the Selkirk Inn for hosting the performers.
Come and join us for an evening of ‘Dance’ Piano Music at the Bonnington Arts Centre.
