With her expressive and nuanced interpretations of contemporary works, Canadian pianist Vicky Chow has been described as “brilliant” (New York Times), “new star of new music” (Los Angeles Times) and “one of our era’s most brilliant pianists” (Pitchfork). Captivating audiences around the world with her expansive repertoire and musical prowess, she enjoys a diverse career collaborating with many of the world’s most renowned composers and ensembles.

She is the pianist for the Bang on a Can All-Stars, piano duo X88, New Music Detroit, and has collaborated with other ensembles such as the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), Wet Ink Ensemble, and Momenta Quartet. As an artist frequently broadcasted on WNYC, her recorded work can be found on the ‘Nonesuch’, ‘New Amsterdam’, ‘Tzadik’, ‘Cantaloupe Music’, ‘Innova’, ‘Hinterzimmer’, and ‘AltaVoz’ labels. Her performances of Morton Feldman and John Cage were featured on BBC3‘s documentary series “The Sound and The Fury,” based on Alex Ross’s book The Rest is Noise.

This concert features Steve Reich’s Piano Counterpoint, which was arranged for Chow in 2011, and other works. Don’t miss this fierce and versatile champion of the cutting edge in new piano music.
