Hear Fausto Miro, M.M. ’17, Vocal Performance, describe his journey as a Longy student and his experience with our world-class faculty and professional partners.
UPCOMING FEATURED EVENTS
Longy faculty and guests will present the music of another Longy faculty member, award-winning composer Aaron Helgeson, whose work combines the sparseness of minimalism, Baroque-like ornamentation, and the sound palette of free improvisation to produce surreal aural deceptions on acoustic instruments. Helgeson holds Masters and Doctoral degrees in composition from University College of San Diego, and Bachelor’s degrees in composition and theater from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music in Ohio.
The Horszowski Trio takes its name from acclaimed Polish American pianist Mieczysław Horszowski—Ms. Aizawa was his last student at the Curtis Institute. Horszowski studied with Theodor Leschetizky in Vienna. Leschetizky studied with Carl Czerny, and Carl Czerny, of scalar and arpeggio fame, studied with Ludwig van Beethoven. In this concert, the Trio will celebrate the degrees of separation between them and Beethoven (four!).
Join Paganini Competition prizewinner Kowoon Yang and Longy faculty artist Esther Ning Yau for an enigmatic journey through Brahms’ complete violin-piano sonatas. Experience Brahms’ unrequited love for Clara Schumann and Hermine Spies, his fertile friendship with Joseph Joachim, and the tragic loss of his godson Felix Schumann—brought to life by the composer’s vivid musical imagination and the colorful artistry of Kowoon and Esther.
