Aspen Santa Fe Ballet: An Evening With Pianist Joyce Yang

Presented in collaboration with the Aspen Music Festival & School
Generous underwriting of this special performance provided by Mona Look-Mazza & Tony Mazza and Judith Z. Steinberg & Paul J. Hoenmans

Enjoy a special two-night encore of this milestone evening of live piano and dance that wowed sold-out audiences in its winter premiere! At the center of this program is the world-renowned pianist Joyce Yang, a Van Cliburn International Piano Competition silver medalist. ASFB tackles the quirky Half/Cut/Split by noted Finnish choreographer Jorma Elo, who collaborated with Yang to bring Robert Schumann’s Carnaval to life. Also on the program are Jiří Kylián’s seminal Return to a Strange Land set to the music of Leoš Janáček, and Nicolo Fonte’s touching Where We Left Off with music by Philip Glass.

“[Yang’s] attention to detail and clarity is as impressive as her agility, balance, and velocity.” The Washington Post
