The 32nd year of Brookings Harbor Friends of Music was kicked off by ZOFO!
This first performance of The 2016/17 Concert Series was well attended by an enthusiastic crowd.
George Cady introduced ZOFO to an appreciative Brookings crowd.
Keisuke Nakagoshi and Eva-Maria Zimmermann, the ZOFO Duet, introduced their first selection, Leonard Bernstein's Overture to Candide.
Program notes: This GRAMMY-nominated, prize-winning Steinway Artist Ensemble - one of only a handful of duos worldwide devoted exclusively to piano duets - is blazing a bold new path for four-hands groups by focusing on 20th an 21st century repertoire and by commissioning new works from noted composers each year.
Twenty fingers danced with animated abandon over one keyboard during the exciting performances of Bernstein's Overture to Candide, Debussy's Six Epigraphes Antiques, Harold Shapero's Sonata for Piano 4 Hands and Igor Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring .
As a finale, the duo performed a new work which they had recently commissioned.
A standing ovation for ZOFO!
