“The music offered a wide variety of different technical and rhetorical approaches to composition, and the variations in media design were just as extensive.” from the review by The Rehearsal Studio.

Ting Luo will present a repertoire spanning the classical era with compositions from Schubert and Bach. The performance will also include several pieces from contemporary and new piano music, featuring works by Phillip Glass, Terry Riley, and Ingrid Stölzel. A special highlight will be the inclusion of prepared piano classics by John Cage. Additionally, Ting Luo will showcase selected compositions from the NAC 2023 season, including pieces by Xuesi Xu, Dylan Findley, and Cole Reyes.
