Thursday, April 26, 2007
7:30 PM, Common Room, Branford College, 74 High Street
New Haven, Connecticut, United States

Concert coordinated by:

Michael Friedmann (Yale University)
Hwang-long Pan (Taipei National University of the Arts)
Chung-kun Hung (Taipei National University of the Arts)

This concert presents works by Hwang-Long Pan (1945- ) and Chung-Kun Hung (1963- ), who represent two different generations of Taiwanese composers. The composers are also differentiated by virtue of their training: Pan was trained in Europe, Hung in the United States. The concert will present five of their compositions, which are deliberately chosen to show as wide as possible a spectrum of musical style among contemporary Taiwanese composers. The composers, who both teach at the Taiwan University of the Arts, will be in attendance, and Professor Hung will make special comments on the program.

This concert is part of the special events surrounding the international conference “Taiwan and Its Contexts” that will take place at Yale University from April 26-28, 2007.
