Pianist Fei-Fei Live From Music Mountain

Live From Music Mountain presents acclaimed pianist Fei-Fei performing works by Schumann, Chopin, Rachmaninoff and Ennio Morricone. This weekly program of conversation and music continues to explore the work of artists during the time of Covid-19.

 

For those wishing to join with a score, the program will include Ennio Morricone’s "Playing Love" from "The Legend of 1900”; Chopin Preludes No. 16-17; Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 2 (II. Adagio sostenuto); and Schumann Kinderszenen, Op.15 "Scenes from Childhood."

 

Fei-Fei was showcased prominently as a Cliburn finalist in the documentary film, Virtuosity, premiered on PBS, and has offered riveting performances at Music Mountain since 2017. During the pandemic Fei-Fei has continued to share her “bountiful gifts and passionate immersion into the music she touches” (The Plain Dealer) via live streams and various recordings from her home in New York City.

 

Fei-Fei is a winner of the Concert Artists Guild Competition and a top finalist at the 14th Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. The 2019-2020 concert season took her across the globe in concerto performances, recitals and chamber music collaborations alike. Highlights include performances with the Baden-Baden Philharmonic touring in Germany, a tour of Spain with the New York Youth Symphony, as well as concerto engagements with the Costa Rica National Symphony Orchestra, Columbus Symphony, Big Springs Symphony and Symphony in C. This season also brought a new special project titled The Inner Voices with violist Dana Kelley and clarinetist Yoonah Kim, featuring the music of Mozart, Schumann and Brahms.
