Phantasmagorias /fanˌtazməˈɡôrēəz/ n. series of real or imagined events that change quickly, one following the other as in a dream.

Spanning from the Baroque to the present day, this program consists of works which act as vignettes of different facets of the human experience. The program begins and ends with préludes by the Lithuanian composer, M. K. Čiurlionis, beginning with sorrow and pain and ending with deliverance and hope. Featured in the program is a piece by another Lithuanian composer, Žibuoklė Martinaitytė, titled “Phantasmagorias” (2023), which features constant rapid shifting of elements, and “Why Do We Suffer?” (2022) by Samuel Durand, which was commissioned by and dedicated to Erica Phung.

Erica Phung is a student of Andrius Žlabys.


Erica Phung currently studies piano with Grammy-nominated pianist and composer Andrius Žlabys at the Longy School of Music, where she is a Gene Dahmen Longy Fund Scholar and holds a Master of Music degree in Piano Performance. She studied piano with Dr. Grace Fong and orchestral conducting with Daniel Alfred Wachs at Chapman University, where she graduated summa cum laude and with departmental honors, receiving a Bachelor of Music degree in Piano Performance and Conducting. A proponent of new music, Phung has commissioned and premiered numerous solo piano, chamber, orchestral, and choral works by composers, including Samuel Durand, Charlotte Koonce, and Hsiu-Ping (Patrick) Wu. Other teachers and mentors include Dr. Irina Prilipko-Morgan, with whom she studied piano for ten years, and Sarah Ioannides, with whom she studied conducting through Cascade Conducting and the Curtis Institute of Music Mentor Network.
