If you've been to a student recital before, you probably expect to hear something like a traditional concert by a touring artist.

Recitals by doctoral students are a somewhat different affair. In the course of completing the Doctor of Musical Arts degree at New England Conservatory, performance majors present not just one, but three full-length recitals, for which they also write program notes. Composers present a recital of their chamber music, then complete a large-scale original work. In both cases, it's an opportunity to observe multiple facets of an emerging artist.

Pianist Theresa Leung, student of Vivian Hornik Weilerstein, Jonathan Feldman, and Cameron Stowe, presents an exciting program featuring collaborations with violin, viola, and cello.

The Program:

Ludwig van Beethoven: Sonata for Piano and Violin in A Major, op. 47 (“Kreutzer”)
Samantha Bennett, violin
Robert Schumann: Märchenbilder, op. 113
Emily Deans, viola
Dimitri Shostakovich: Sonata for Cello and Piano in D Minor, op. 40
Zhou Yi, cello

Date: April 16, 2014 - 8:00:PM
Price: Free
Location: Keller Room

Theresa Leung is the recipient of the Bettina Baruch Scholarship.
