All Longy students present full recitals as part of their education and ongoing evolution as artists. They are charged with thinking critically about what stories they tell, whose voices to amplify, and who’s in the room for their event while also considering how to use performance spaces in innovative ways and how to truly engage audiences and create interactive music experiences. 

Lifeng Tang is a student of Anna Williams.

Program Notes:
She is a wonderful female pianist and composer. She was the only female piano professor at the Paris Conservatoire in the 19th century. Many of her students graduated with first prizes and became professional performers. Her compositions for piano were also successful, admired by the likes of Robert Schumann. She began to try to write chamber music in the 1830s, and the work to be performed today was written by her in 1850. Many times I don’t think it’s like a violin sonata, it’s more like a piano, the piano part is really beautiful, haha, I hope you enjoy it.


Lifeng Tang is a violinist, educator, and music advocate. He encourages students to think and explore instead of just getting an answer. This way makes his students feel curious and interested in music instead of pressure and tasks.
