Refractions: Works for Violin and Piano

February 2019

Ying Xue and Qing Jiang return to Yellow Barn to formalize their collaboration as Duo-ING. Their residency focuses on sonatas of Bach and Ravel, juxtaposed with works written over the past decade by Tonia Ko, Eric Nathan, Sean Shepherd, and Daniel Temkin. Refractions—like light, bending in water—suggests how pieces from different eras illuminate one another and frame our listening experience.

This is the first of two residency periods for the Duo-ING. They will return to Yellow Barn in November 2019, and conclude their residency with a performance at Next Stage on November 16, 2019.
