From Light to Darkness

~ For Solo Piano and Voice ~

This program traces the daily cycle following dawn, noon, dusk, and night through solo piano and vocal works. There are many ways to do it, but I would like to feature miniature treasures in this program to take a less-is-more approach. (Sometimes candlelight can be more luminous than chandeliers.) In order to present those miniatures in a way that they deserve, my plan is to create an intimate setting because I do believe they are meant to be shared in a very personal way.
More details to come in the future…
