Conrad Tao, pianist: Open reading/recording of new works by graduate student composers
Thursday, March 24, 2016 - 2:00pm
Conrad Tao began his musical career as a wunderkind. As a pre-teenager he appeared as both a violin and piano soloist with dozens of top-tier orchestras, and later received eight consecutive ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer Awards. Now twenty-one, he has transitioned gracefully into a mature artist with interpretive depth well beyond his years. The Baltimore Sun declares, "Tao possesses startling technical élan and an ability to communicate clearly, no matter how thorny a score may become."The public is invited to attend this reading/recording session of new works by Duke graduate student composers. This event is presented in association with Duke Performances.
