I’m very happy to announce The Keyboard in the 21st Century, an international conference for composers to be held this April 4-5 at HKBU. Featuring performances by outstanding Hong Kong pianists and guest performers, the conference will showcase the breadth of creative voices working with a range of keyboard instruments. Significantly, we are interested in presenting works for piano, harpsichord, clavichord, fortepiano, organ, and synthesizer, with optional electronics. In addition to performances and roundtable discussions by participating composers, we are pleased to feature lectures and performances of music by George Tsontakis, Kennedy Wong Distinguished Visiting Professor in the Department of Music at HKBU and Distinguished Composer-in-Residence at Bard College Conservatory of Music, and Carlos Sanchez-Gutierrez, Featured Guest Composer and Professor of Composition at the Eastman School of Music. This conference will be one of the highlights of George’s activities this spring at HKBU. My recent piano work, Inner Truth, will also be performed.
