Our next concert hour, Shiau-uen Ding on October 15, will be performing Philippe Manoury’s formidable Pluton, for piano with MIDI and computer in the D-10 performance lab.
A native of Taiwan, pianist Shiau-uen Ding is an energetic performer of traditional and contemporary repertoire. She studied piano with Eugene Pridonoff, Elizabeth Pridonoff, and Lina Yeh, computer music with Mara Helmuth and Christopher Bailey, and contemporary improvisation with Alan Bern at National Taiwan Normal University and University of Cincinnati, where she received her doctoral degree. She lives in New York City.
“I’ve been listening to Phillipe Monoury’s Pluton, and it’s such a daunting piece, both the piano and electronic parts,” Shaiu-uen wrote last summer. Be on hand as this adventurous performer delivers the word!
