Noe Valley Chamber Music Presents: ZOFO
Sunday October 6 at 4pm, Noe Valley Chamber Music presents the internationally acclaimed ZOFO Duet performing 20th century American classical works for piano-four-hands.
Solo pianists Eva-Maria Zimmerman and Keisuke Nakagashi have electrified audiences from across the world with their dazzling artistry and outside-the-box programming for piano-four-hands. This Grammy nominated duo is blazing a bold new path for piano-four-hands groups by focusing on 20th and 21st century repertoire and by commissioning new works from noted composers each year.
The concert will take place at St. Mark's Lutheran Church and includes a pre-concert talk with composer Gabriela Lena Frank at 3:15. Audience members have the chance to mingle with the performers while enjoying light refreshments immediately following the performance. Tickets range from $10-$25, with a discount for advance purchases.
Keisuke Nakagoshi began his piano studies at age ten, arriving in the United States from Japan at 18. He earned his Bachelor's degree in Composition and Masters Degree in Chamber Music from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, graduating as the recipient of multiple top awards.
