Chow’s performance is a mind-boggling balance of emotional and mathematical delivery, incorporating
the entire sonic spectrum of her instrument and teetering at the limits of human endurance.” – Q2 Music

Have you heard pianist Vicky Chow?  She plays like a rock star.  Whether performing with New York’s Bang on a Can All-Stars or playing a solo concert of music by Steve Reich, Vicky sets the music world on fire.

She returns to Vancouver for a mesmerizing hour-long concert of music by composer and visual artist Tristan Perich.

Tristan is a composer and visual and electronics artist whose music has “an intense, hypnotic force and a surprising emotional depth.” (Wall Street Journal)  He wrote Surface Image for Vicky, and October 27 at the Modulus Festival is its Canadian debut, fresh from performances in New York and Detroit.  Q2 Music describes the piece as “Perich’s most compelling and emotionally affective work to date.”

If you love music by Philip Glass and Steve Reich, this is a not-to-be-missed concert that hails a new generation of great musicians.  The concert also marks the release of Vicky and Tristan’s CD on New Amsterdam Records.
