Program - Hymns and Dervishes
Selections by Gurdjieff/De Hartmann, presented in altered tunings imagined by Frederic Chiu

Yamaha Artist FREDERIC CHIU's intriguing piano-playing and teaching springs from a diverse set of experiences and interests: his Asian/American/European background, his musical training, and an early and ongoing exploration of artificial intelligence and human psychology, especially the body-mind-heart connection. With over 20 CDs on the market, his repertoire includes the complete work of Prokofiev as well as popular classics of Chopin, Liszt, and others, and lesser-known masterpieces of Mendelssohn and Rossini, with a special place for the piano transcription. Stereo Review has singled many out as "Record of the Year." His transcription recordings garnered "Top 10" recognition by the New Yorker, with raves from the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times. His most recent recordings demonstrate his wide range: Beethoven/Liszt Symphony V, Carnival of the Animals with David Gonzalez, and Hymns and Dervishes, music by Gurdjieff/de Hartmann. In this special concert, Chiu celebrates his 25 years as a Yamaha Artist as well as Sundays Live's 25th anniversary.  Read about FREDERIC CHIU by clicking:

Pianist ROBERT THIES is an artist renowned for his consummate musicianship and poetic temperament. He first captured worldwide attention in 1995 when he won the Gold Medal at the Second International Prokofiev Competition in St. Petersburg, Russia. With this victory, Thies became the only American pianist to win a Russian piano competition since Van Cliburn's triumph in Moscow in 1958.

Robert Thies enjoys a diverse career as an orchestral soloist, recitalist, and chamber musician. He has performed 40 different concerti with orchestras all over the world, including the Saint Petersburg Philharmonic, the Auckland Philharmonia (New Zealand), the Mexico City Philharmonic, Mexico's National Symphony, the Fort Worth Symphony, the Pasadena Symphony, the Louisville Orchestra, and the Naples Philharmonic.

A dedicated chamber musician, Thies is highly sought after as a recital partner and collaborator in both instrumental and vocal chamber music. He frequently shares the stage with members of the LA Philharmonic and the LA Chamber Orchestra. He also performs frequently with his unique ensemble, the Thies Consort.

A graduate of USC, his teachers have included ROBERT TURNER and DANIEL POLLACK, both protégés of the legendary Russian teacher and pianist Madame Rosina Lhevinne and the great pianist Josef Lhevinne. Robert has an avid Southern California following. He is returning to the Palos Verdes Peninsula where he grew up for his eighth appearance on the Second Sundays At Two series.

Lauri's List founder LAURI GOLDENHERSH writes, "unSUNg is the summer concert series from Lauri's List, bringing you new and neglected vocal chamber music while providing performance and live recording opportunities for professional classical singers, instrumentalists, and composers. Each program includes several 'sets' featuring passion projects from different presenters, and no two concerts are the same. See the past four seasons by clicking:

Be sure to stay for the reception in St. Mark's beautiful courtyard, for a chance to meet the performers and network with the local vocal community.

Program
Beethoven: Kakadu Variations, Op.121a
Dvorák: Piano Trio in E Minor, Op.90, "Dumky"

Hailed as "a first-class ensemble" (Orange County Register), "unfailingly stylish" (The Strad), "technically dazzling" (Long Beach Gazette), "flawless" (New York Concert Review), and "the epitome of what chamber musicians should be" (Palm Beach Daily News), Trio Céleste has firmly established itself as one of the most dynamic chamber music ensembles on the classical music scene today.

2017 highlights include recital debuts at the Chicago Cultural Center, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, New York's Carnegie Hall, Seoul Art Center in South Korea, and the world premiere of Paul Dooley's Concerto Grosso for Piano Trio and Strings co-commissioned by Trio Céleste and Chamber Music | OC. Winners of the prestigious Beverly Hills National Auditions, the ensemble has performed hundreds of recitals worldwide also appearing in masterclasses, entrepreneurship seminars, and performance residencies at some of the nation's top academic institutions and centers for arts and culture. In 2014, the ensemble was selected from over 500 applicants to be Artists-in-Residence at The Grand Canyon National Park.
