New Music Concert Series Presents ZOFO
(Delaware and Chester Counties, PA • September 28, 2017)—Delaware County Community College’s New Music Concert Series continues with a performance by ZOFO on Sunday, October 22. The performance begins at 3 p.m. in the Large Auditorium of the Academic Building on the Marple Campus (901 South Media Line Road, Media, PA).
Since joining forces as a professional duo in 2009, internationally acclaimed solo pianists Eva Maria Zimmerman and Keisuke Nakagoshi—ZOFO—have electrified audiences from Carnegie Hall to Tokyo, Japan with their dazzling artistry and outside-the-box thematic programming for piano-four-hands. This GRAMMY-nominated, prize-winning Steinway Artist Ensemble—one of only a handful of duos worldwide devoted exclusively to piano duets—is blazing a bold new path for four-hands groups by focusing on 20th and 21st century repertoire and by commissioning new works from noted composers each year.
For this performance, ZOFO, which is shorthand for 20-finger orchestra (ZO=20 and FO=finger orchestra), will perform works by Gabriella Smith, Ryan Brown, Nicholas Pavkovik, Sahba Aminikia, Pablo Ortiz, Kenji Oh, Gabriela Lena Frank, and Igor Stravinsky. They believe that the piano duet is the most intimate form of chamber music, with two musicians playing individual parts on one instrument in a complex, often beautiful, choreography of four hands.
Admission to the performance is $10 and tickets are available online or at the door. ADA Assistive Listening Devices, accessible seating and free parking are available. For more information, visit dccc.edu/concerts or contact Caitlin Flaherty, Supervisor of Arts Administration, at 610-359-5266.
