Performance Description:
Hyo-shin Na Sea Wind
Franz Schubert Deutsche Tänze
Franz Schubert Wanderer Fantasie
Franz Schubert Sonata in B flat, D. 960

Thomas Schultz celebrates the breadth and depth of Schubert's piano music, from the elegant miniatures of the German Dances to the virtuosity of the Wanderer Fantasie and the monumental scale of the B flat Sonata. Also on the program is Hyo-shin Na's Sea Wind, her first work for piano solo in seven years. Praised by San Francisco Chronicle music critic Joshua Kosman for his "strong, fearless execution," "depth of feeling," and "fiery elegance and formal command", Thomas Schultz has established an international reputation both as an interpreter of music from the classical tradition—particularly Bach, Beethoven, Schubert and Liszt—and as one of the leading exponents of the music of our time. He has worked closely with such eminent composers as John Cage, Morton Feldman, Christian Wolff, Frederic Rzewski, Earle Brown, Jonathan Harvey and Elliott Carter (in performances of the Double Concerto at the Colorado Music Festival and at Alice Tully Hall in New York).
