Bookworming, Burrowing, Heralding Schumann’s Rebirth

On a cold-by-Sichuan-standard evening not long ago, I teamed up with composer-pianist Gao Ping to present two collections of character pieces by Robert Schumann to a fine audience of literati in Chengdu’s hub of print and chamber music culture, The Bookworm.

亚当 凯思卡特 (大提琴)和 高平 (钢琴) 在成都市“书虫“演出德国浪漫时代的室内音乐,2010年12月 - 周英拍照, Adam Cathcart (cello) and Gao Ping (piano) perform chamber works of German Romanticism at the Bookworm, Chengdu (Sichuan, PRC), December 2010

Alas, no sound recordings were made, but we made short work of the Fantasiestucke as well as the Five Pieces in Folk Style, and ended with a wintry improvisation.  In between, there were Chopin Scherzi for piano and Bach Suites for Cello.
