Mei-Ting plays Chopin at The OSO

International concert pianist Mei-Ting has wowed our audiences with his performances of music by J S Bach and Art Tatum, and we are delighted to present a recital of popular works by Chopin.
Described as “bewitching” (Boston Globe) and “stunningly fluid” (New York Times), acclaimed pianist Mei-Ting Sun began his life on the concert stage at the prestigious Spring of Shanghai Festival in 1986 when he was just 5 years old. At 9, he left Shanghai for New York and eventually received Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Mannes College of Music, and a Doctorate from the Juilliard School.

Mei-Ting has won numerous awards and has been heard in recital across the globe. His career has led him to performances in 19 countries through five continents. He is currently on the teaching faculty of the Royal Academy of Music.

Buenos Klezmer! at The OSO

Maya Levy – soprano

Livia Frankish – clarinet

Mayda Narvey – cello

Eyal Pik – guitar

 

This vibrant ensemble performed to sell out audiences at The Bull’s Head in 2019 and we are thrilled to welcome them to The OSO to delight and intrigue with uplifting, haunting and heart-warming Klezmer music – authentic Jewish folk music of the Eastern European shtetl and medieval Sephardic world.

Vocalist Maya Levy weaves a fascinating tale of these long-ago worlds while clarinettist Livia Frankish wails, guitarist Eyal Pik serenades and cellist Mayda Narvey straddles the support of stand up bass and the interweaving melodies of the violin.

Come prepared to laugh, cry and stamp your feet!
