The New Yorker Recommends Spectrum Concert
- September 19, 2018
Check out this listing from The New Yorker for my Spectrum concert!
For some musicians, every note has its own hue. Others find that certain phrases taste bitter, or feel rough. For Jenny Q Chai, a pianist whose dazzling facility is matched by her deep musicality, some pieces explode with “strong colors and light,” phenomena that she learned to re-create in pigment during a residency at the Cité des Arts, in Paris. On July 28, she performs the synaesthetic program “Sonorous Brushes”—in which she uses cutting-edge score-following technology to combine her playing (including music by Debussy and Messiaen, and new audiovisual work by Jarosław Kapuściński) with her paintings—at Spectrum, in Brooklyn.
