 In the 25 years since his graduation, pianist Meng-Chieh Liu has earned a place among the most respected musicians of his generation. Throughout that time he has continuously been a vital presence at Curtis as a performer, teacher, and mentor. In the second of three programs, Liu delves into the world of Paul Hindemith, the prolific composer of chamber music who produced some of the most original and idiomatic sonatas of the 20th century. He is joined by an incomparable roster of Curtis brass faculty, who themselves hold principal positions in The Philadelphia Orchestra and the Pittsburgh Symphony.
