"[Zhang's] aim for lightness, transparency and directness yields poetic results."
Jed Distler,
Gramophone

“Such a combination of enchanting, sensitive lyricism and hypnotizing forcefulness is a phenomenon encountered very rarely.”
Ury Eppstein,
The Jerusalem Post

“... He displayed poetic temperament as much as technical power… A pianist with ample reserves of power whose imagination seems nonetheless most kindled by subtle delicacy.”  
Matthew Guerrieri,
The Boston Globe

“He made the Allegretto dance with Mendelssohnian lightness and Lisztian diablerie, 
and played the melody of the Quasi Adagio with melting softness.”

張昊辰  

"[Zhang's] aim for lightness, transparency and directness yields poetic results."
Jed Distler,
Gramophone

“Such a combination of enchanting, sensitive lyricism and hypnotizing forcefulness is a phenomenon encountered very rarely.”
Ury Eppstein,
The Jerusalem Post

“... He displayed poetic temperament as much as technical power… A pianist with ample reserves of power whose imagination seems nonetheless most kindled by subtle delicacy.”  
Matthew Guerrieri,
The Boston Globe

“He made the Allegretto dance with Mendelssohnian lightness and Lisztian diablerie, 
and played the melody of the Quasi Adagio with melting softness.”
Ivan Hewitt, 
The Telegraph

Marc Ponthus,  

pianist

 

Marc Ponthus pioneered the monographic solo piano recital of leading avantgarde composers from the second half of the 20th century, devoting entire programs, often their entire piano music, to composers including Pierre Boulez, Karlheinz Stockhausen and Iannis Xenakis. He has recorded for Neuma Records, Lorelt Records and Bridge Records. Gramophone Magazine chose his recording of Boulez’s complete piano work as Editor’s Choice.

 

Ponthus was conductor of the Eastside Ensemble, the IFCP Ensemble and the Project Webern Orchestra. He has staged and directed contemporary chamber operas. Ponthus edited and prefaced a book of essays on the music of Elliott Carter (Pendragon Press) and produced “Pierre Boulez in Conversation with Marc Ponthus”, a video filmed at the Deutsche Staat Opera by the award winning film maker Sylvia Calle. 

 

Ponthus has performed extensively in North America and abroad in series and festivals. He composes under the “nom de plume” Oữτις. He has combined video collage in live performances. He was the founder and artistic director of the Institute and Festival for Contemporary Performance in New York (IFCP). Ponthus has written and directed numerous short films. His experimental films “Odyssey to Desire”, “Girl streaminG”, “Pianissimo”, and “if,…the ruins of narrative” were chosen as official selections at a number of international film festivals. Ponthus is a recipient of the Tanne Foundation's Award for achievement in the arts.

In memory of Fou Ts'ong's 傅聰 visits to Boston and NYC during 1993-2007 
A Photo Tribute
(photos could be viewed better at:

During 1993 to 2007, the Foundation for Chinese Performing Arts had the great honor presenting Mr. Fou Ts'ong 傅聰 in 9 concerts and master classes at New England Conservatory's Jordan Hall and Carnegie Hall Issac Stern Auditorium. These concerts were enthusiastically received by packed audience and to critical acclaims. 

Mr. Fou normally arrive one week early before his recital and stayed with Mr. and Mrs. Lena and Yu-Sing Jung to adjust jet lag. During those days, Boston area scholars and musicians gathered around him for dinner or tea to talk about literature, arts, music, history, philosophy, and much more in a relaxed and casual setting. Studio students of Mr. Russell Sherman and Ms. Wha Kyung Byun, many of them are great musicians now, were also invited to experience the most inspiring conversation that one could ever imaging.

We wished that we could record some of the conversation, but doubtfully that would be allowed. Photos were not easy most of the time. Mr. Fou does not like anything rigid or formal. Everything has to be spontaneous and natural. We found a few photos and shared here in his memory.

Mr. Fou's father Fou Lei 傅雷 once said, and he followed it faithfully all his life, that "It is most important to be a decent human being, then an artist, then a musician, and the last is a good pianist." A great human being Mr. Fou was. His legacy shall live on forever.

A Tribute to Mr. Russell Sherman 
by: George Li

Mr. Sherman's legacy goes beyond his being a pianist, a legendary one at that. In fact, his pianism is only a microcosm of who he is - one gets the feeling when going to his concert that we aren't just listening to music, but rather to Mr. Sherman's mind and musical being. He beguiles and leads us into his world, and for 2 hours we are captivated and spellbound by the music that emits from his fingertips and spirit. Each time he plays, he achieves the impossible: he is able to convey such awe inspiring individualism while also paying deep respect and meticulous detail to the composer and the corresponding score. This is combined with a complete mastery of the keyboard to the point where playing transcends the piano, and where one is taken to a sheer musical paradise. I remember years ago when I was a carefree teenager, when Ms. Byun told me to voice an 8 note chord so that each voice had a character of their own, and thus make it 3 dimensional. I immediately balked at such a task, believing it to be impossible. The next week, I went to Mr. Sherman's recital in Jordan Hall, and was taught firsthand what a 3 dimensional chord sounded like - the playing penetrates beyond the surface of the piano and the listener's ear, and rather transmits throughout the entire body, and one is simply left awestruck at how a simple bass chord can sound like 8 different voices singing in harmony.

But Mr. Sherman is also an equally inspiring teacher. He somehow achieves the balance between an unwavering supreme standard for pianism and musicianship, while also encouraging individual artistic freedom - there isn't one without the other. Again, his overwhelmingly strong spirit paves the path for this, as his convictions and philosophies about life, art and music guides and pushes us beyond our own limitations. He passionately sings for us, utters phrases of indescribable imagery, to help inspire us to understand the musical language and character of a given piece. We are shown the beauties of the Garden of Eden, and he is our guide who teaches us how to appreciate the sublime - and for that we are eternally grateful.

The program I have chosen features late masterworks by Beethoven and Liszt, two composers which are synonymous with the artistry of Mr. Sherman. Of course, he is the first American pianist to record the complete Beethoven sonatas and concerti, but his playing goes much further beyond that Herculean achievement. He is one of the few pianists I know that truly achieves the fine balance between character and intellect, between "white heat" and "cold blood," while also having such firm and utterly convincing convictions about whatever piece of music he touches. I realize the enormous and the sheer impossibility of my task tonight, but can only do my best and will attempt to do the same.

A Tribute to Mr. Russell Sherman 

by: George Li

 

Mr. Sherman's legacy goes beyond his being a pianist, a legendary one at that. In fact, his pianism is only a microcosm of who he is - one gets the feeling when going to his concert that we aren't just listening to music, but rather to Mr. Sherman's mind and musical being. He beguiles and leads us into his world, and for 2 hours we are captivated and spellbound by the music that emits from his fingertips and spirit. Each time he plays, he achieves the impossible: he is able to convey such awe inspiring individualism while also paying deep respect and meticulous detail to the composer and the corresponding score. This is combined with a complete mastery of the keyboard to the point where playing transcends the piano, and where one is taken to a sheer musical paradise. I remember years ago when I was a carefree teenager, when Ms. Byun told me to voice an 8 note chord so that each voice had a character of their own, and thus make it 3 dimensional. I immediately balked at such a task, believing it to be impossible. The next week, I went to Mr. Sherman's recital in Jordan Hall, and was taught firsthand what a 3 dimensional chord sounded like - the playing penetrates beyond the surface of the piano and the listener's ear, and rather transmits throughout the entire body, and one is simply left awestruck at how a simple bass chord can sound like 8 different voices singing in harmony.

But Mr. Sherman is also an equally inspiring teacher. He somehow achieves the balance between an unwavering supreme standard for pianism and musicianship, while also encouraging individual artistic freedom - there isn't one without the other. Again, his overwhelmingly strong spirit paves the path for this, as his convictions and philosophies about life, art and music guides and pushes us beyond our own limitations. He passionately sings for us, utters phrases of indescribable imagery, to help inspire us to understand the musical language and character of a given piece. We are shown the beauties of the Garden of Eden, and he is our guide who teaches us how to appreciate the sublime - and for that we are eternally grateful.

The program I have chosen features late masterworks by Beethoven and Liszt, two composers which are synonymous with the artistry of Mr. Sherman. Of course, he is the first American pianist to record the complete Beethoven sonatas and concerti, but his playing goes much further beyond that Herculean achievement. He is one of the few pianists I know that truly achieves the fine balance between character and intellect, between "white heat" and "cold blood," while also having such firm and utterly convincing convictions about whatever piece of music he touches. I realize the enormous and the sheer impossibility of my task tonight, but can only do my best and will attempt to do the same.
