About This Performance

Among the world’s leading flute virtuosos, Marina Piccinini is known for her flawless technical command, profound interpretive instincts and charismatic stage presence. In collaboration with Meng Su—the 2015 Parkening International Guitar Competition Gold Medalist from the Beijing Guitar Duo—they will explore two of Bach’s Flute Sonatas celebrating the flute’s technical and expressive qualities and tonal colors as well as Piazzolla’s L’Histoire du Tango—a piece that catalogues the history of tango in 30 year intervals and Beaser’s Mountain Songs highlighting the Southern mountains of Appalachia and American Folk Song.
