A Study of György Ligeti

Either/Or

Tuesday, April 26, 2016, 6pm

Miller Theatre at Columbia University

This event has ended.

Bring a friend, grab a drink, and join some of today’s most interesting performers onstage at Miller Theatre on select Tuesday evenings.

Either/Or joins us for an evening of György Ligeti’s later works. Pianist Taka Kigawa expresses the versatility and power of piano in six of Ligeti’s Études—“a kaleidoscopic set of works that demands the unrelenting energy and precision that are Mr. Kigawa’s specialties" (The Wall Street Journal). Violinist Jennifer Choi and horn player Rachel Drehmann join Kigawa for Trio for Violin, Horn and Piano, a piece that marked a turn toward historic influences in Ligeti’s career.

All Pop-Up Concerts start at 6 p.m. Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis, and doors open at 5:30 p.m.
