An artist of singular vision, pianist Jenny Q Chai is known for both her expressive technique, and for the beauty of her programming, through which she explores connections between history, art, science, and technology.
This Friday, Chai and her frequent duo partner, pianist Adam Kośmieja, join the Polish National Radio Symphony in Katowice for the opening concert of the Warsaw Autumn Festival – Poland’s largest contemporary music festival – where they perform the Polish premiere of Philippe Manoury’s 2012 two-piano concerto, Zones de turbulences.
Chai began the season with a residency at IRCAM in Paris (her third of the year), where she worked with the composer Jarosław Kapuściński on his intermedia work for piano, Where is Chopin?, employing the artificial intelligence programAntescofo.
Later this month, Chai tours the American southeast, offering a recital, master class, and a student composer reading at Georgia Southern University, and performances for Tuesday’s Music Live and Music Through The Ages. And looking forward, she caps off the fall with return visits to Boston Conservatory and Harvard University.
