Margaret Leng Tan at National Sawdust

Saturday December 3, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

$25

Renowned Avant-garde pianist Margaret Leng Tan, known as the “Queen of the toy piano” and “the world’s premiere string piano virtuoso,” will present a  program honoring the late American composer George Crumb and his late wife Elizabeth May Brown. Tan will perform Crumb’s final work, Metamorphoses (Book II) for amplified piano, which he personally gave her during a visit to his Pennsylvania home last year. Included on the program is Christopher Hopkins’ Arched Interiors II for bowed piano, a condensed version of the original Arched Interiors Hopkins wrote for Tan in 1991. Tan will also introduce the rapturous Minimal music of German composer Hans Otte with selections from his Das Buch der Klänge (The Book of Sounds). Tan explores the full virtuosic potential of the piano’s extended possibilities through these three diverse works, drawing on her decades of experience as a trailblazing performer. Join Margaret Leng Tan and National Sawdust in this special commemorative tribute to George and Elizabeth Crumb.
