Artist Talk & Presentation with Satoko Fujii
Artist Talk and Presentation with Contemporary Musical Arts guest artist Satoko Fujii
For more than 25 years, pianist Satoko Fujii has created unique, personal music that spans many genres, blending Black improvisational music, contemporary European concert music, rock, and traditional Japanese music into a compelling synthesis that is instantly recognizable as hers alone. A prolific composer for ensembles of all sizes and a performer who has appeared in concert throughout the world, she was the recipient of a 2020 Instant Award in Improvised Music, in recognition of her “artistic intelligence, independence, and integrity.”
This event is presented as part of the Contemporary Musical Arts 50th anniversary celebrations.
