The innovative Aspen Santa Fe Ballet presents a program devoted to contemporary dance works accompanied by pianist Joyce Yang. Devoted to curating new ballets, the company has come to epitomize the contemporary-classical genre. The ballets for this program will be chosen from works set to music by Robert Schumann, Leoš Janáček, Philip Glass and Erik Satie.
Korean-born pianist Joyce Yang won fame when she was awarded the Silver Medal at the 2005 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. She has gone on to perform with major orchestras and received a Grammy nomination for her collaboration with violinist Augustin Hadelich on Works for Violin and Piano (2016). The Washington Post noted, “Yang’s attention to detail and clarity is as impressive as her agility, balance and velocity.”
