Pomona College faculty member and pianist Jennie Jung joins up with guest violinist Elbert Tsai for a delightful program of violin sonatas by Beethoven, Dvořák and Saint-Saëns.
Jung debuted with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra at the age of 11 and has since been active as both a soloist and collaborator. As a collaborative pianist, she has performed in North America, Asia, Africa and Europe, and has been on staff at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, Aspen Summer Music Festival, Gregor Piatigorsky Seminar for Cellists, Banff Centre for the Arts and Center Stage Strings. She is also a member of the Jung Trio with her sisters Ellen (violin) and Julie (cello).
Tsai has joined Jung in concerts before, including a Friday Noon Concert. He has led a multifaceted career as a recitalist and sought-after pedagogue. Currently a teacher at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, he also leads an active performing schedule. He has appeared with the Bear Valley Music Festival, Oakland Opera Theater and Sacramento Symphony, often performing concertos featuring his own original cadenzas. Showcasing the 450-year history of great violin music, his approach hearkens back to the golden age of the virtuoso violinist-composer.
