Keokea…On Saturday, June 1st, 7PM, Ebb & Flow Arts will
present Duo Diorama – Minghuan Xu, violin, and Winston Choi, piano – in a concert featuring works by Béla Bartók, Alfred Schnittke, Dmitri Shostakovich, John Corigliano, Augusta Read Thomas, and Robert Pollock. The site of these concerts is the St. Michael All Angels Episcopal Church, 4364 Hardy Street in Lihue, Kauai. A pre-concert discussion will occur at 6PM.

Admission is free!

Just before the lockdown, Ebb & Flow Arts was to present Duo Diorama on Kauai. Unfortunately E&FA had to cancel the concert because of the pandemic.. Thanks to a grant from the Hawai’i State Foundation on Culture and the Arts, E&FA will be able to pick up where we left up with this June 1st concert.

“We are thrilled to present Duo Diorama once again,” says Robert Pollock, Executive Director of E&FA. “They are some of the leading exponents of Modern Music,” he adds.

“Both players were terrific. Xu’s fiddling featured spotless finger and bow technique, a keen feel for dramatic flair, and a big, sturdy tone free of forcing. Choi was a more than equal partner at the keyboard. His sound was lively and lucid, his digital work was immaculate, and his shaping of material showed insightful articulation of phrase and voicing.”—New Music Connoisseur

“Choi is an intellectual when it comes to music,”said Conductor Victor Yampolsky. “It manifests itself in his handling of musical forms and composers’ styles and wishes. Xu is spontaneous, rhapsodic, and romantic. Together, it is a wonderful dynamic.”

This event is part of E&FA’s annual, multi day, multi site, international NORTH SOUTH EAST WEST FESTIVAL 2024. NSEW Fest 2024 is produced, in part, with support from Hawai’i State Foundation on Culture and the Arts, Korean American Foundation Hawai’i, AHS Foundation, John R. Halligan Charitable Fund, Roger Shapiro Fund for New Music, Edward T. Cone Foundation, Amphion Foundation, BMI Foundation, The Kosasa Foundation, Vendetti Productions LLC, and private contributions.
