Dear colleagues!

I am so excited to share with you the video excerpt from our most recent Cal Poly Pomona Piano Ensemble concert on March 1, 2017, featuring two newly-written works for 6 pianists (on 3 pianos and 2 toy pianos) by Tom Flaherty and James Matheson.

I performed these works with my students Michael Tran, Long Yu, Sophia Lin, Kimberley Chan, Matt Borgialli, Ruisha Zhang, and Michael Jung, who all did an outstanding job!

These pieces are part of my world premiere recording project "Quotations and Homages," which features new compositions inspired by earlier composers and works (the two sextets are inspired by Stravinsky and Beethoven).

I recorded both piano sextets for a commercial release with Genevieve Feiwen Lee, Ray-Kallay Duo (Vicki Ray and Aron Kallay) and HOCKET (Sarah Gibson and Thomas Kotcheff), produced by 5-time Grammy Award winner Elaine Martone. The album will be released in 2018 on the Reference Recordings label. After recording the compositions with the professional artists listed above, I taught them to my students (performing in this video), who also performed these piano sextets in master classes for the producer and all the composers and performers involved in the recording.

I hope you enjoy this clip! I am very proud of my students and plan to bring them on tour with me next season.
