TX State International Concert Series presents:Pius Cheung, marimba
7:30 p.m.
Performing Arts Center Recital Hall

Neo-Romantic marimba virtuoso Pius Cheung is widely known as a master soloist. His brilliant CD of Bach’s Goldberg Variations was written about in a feature story in The New York Times, which praised not only the technical feat of performing the intricacies of this keyboard work with 4 mallets, but also expressed admiration for his “deeply expressive interpretation, notable for its clear voicing, eloquent phrasing and wide range of color and dynamics.” His second CD, “Symphonic Poem,” released at the Percussive Arts Society International Convention in 2009, presents Cheung’s own compositions,. As a composer, Cheung’s Three Etudes won First Prize in the Classical Marimba League’s Competition in 2007. He has also composed a Concerto for Marimba and String Orchestra, and collections of preludes, etudes and sonatas. Mr. Cheung’s exciting engagements include an appearance as concerto soloist with the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra performing “Colours of Crimson” by Bright
Sheng. Cheung made his New York solo recital debut in the Young Concert Artists Series at Carnegie’s Zankel Hall, his Kennedy Center debut in Washington, DC, and at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. He has appeared as concerto soloist with the Philadelphia Orchestra as winner of their annual concerto competition at the Kimmel Center, with the British Columbia Chamber Orchestra and Vancouver Metropolitan Orchestra in Canada. He has performed marimba recitals in Boston, Canada, Denmark, Croatia, and at the Hong Kong Arts Festival.

Cheung moved from his native Hong Kong to Vancouver at the age of 12. He received his Bachelor of Music from the Curtis Institute, his Artist Diploma from The Boston Conservatory, and his doctorate from the University of Michigan. Mr. Cheung currently holds the post of Assistant Professor of Percussion at the University of Oregon and is a Yamaha Performing Artist.
