Empress Theatre in Vallejo - Night One

  • Empress Theatre 330 Virginia Street Vallejo, CA, 94590 United States (map)

Founder and Artistic Director Jeffrey LaDeur opens the evening with one of Liszt’s most magical pieces before joining Albert Kim in Schubert’s joyous Variations in A-Flat D.813. Following intermission, Eunmi Ko will present a varied program centering on two contemporary works inspired by the cosmos: George Crumb's Makrokosmos Book II and David Liptak’s Constellations, the title track of Ms. Ko’s latest recording. George Crumb celebrates his 90th birthday this year and has long been one of the most beloved and influential composers of our time. Ko's hypnotic performance at the Empress in 2018 led to her return engagement by popular demand.
