Maybeck Recital Hall! Albert Kim created a sensation with his performance of Ravel during the inaugural festival of 2017. Now he returns to perform the composer's visionary realization of Aloysius Bertrand's Poetry. Ravel expands and exploits the full tonal resources of the piano and unleashes a demonic virtuosity that has captured the imagination of pianists and audiences alike for over a century. Jiyang Chen returns by popular demand after his enchanting, salon-inspired recital in 2018. Don't miss this intimate afternoon concert- space is very limited!
