Review: Passionate performance concludes contemporary music festival


The three-day Gamper Festival of Contemporary Music ended with a bang Sunday evening at Studzinski Recital Hall, with pianist Emma Tahmizian, violinist Frank Huang, violist Dimitri Murrath and cellist David Requiro in a passionate performance of "Far Variations" by Turkish-American composer Kamran Ince (b. 1960).

WHERE: Studzinski Recital Hall, Bowdoin College

DATE REVIEWED: Sunday, July 28

Turkey was the westernmost point in an evening devoted to music by Asian composers, including one work played by the composer herself, "Chung-Sung Gok," by JungYoon Wie of South Korea, based on a tune for the Korean flute,  a recording of which was played before the performance.
