Flutist Mary Oleskiewicz teams up with China’s leading Bach interpreter!
On March 26, Mary Oleskiewicz of Boston and Yuan Sheng of Beijing will perform an all All-Bach program at Beijing’s Forbidden City Concert Hall, one of China’s main stages. The program will feature all of Bach’s sonatas for flute and basso continuo and flute and obbligato harpsichord, and also the composer’s formidable unaccompanied flute partita in A minor. Sheng, of the Central Conservatory in Beijing, is China’s premier Bach pianist, and an artist intent on bringing an awareness and appreciation for Bach’s music to his fellow countrymen. Oleskiewicz, who teachers at the University of Massachusetts, is a prizewinning flutist and leading Bach interpreter in the U.S.
On March 27, they will show their stunning versatility by performing a virtuoso program of nineteenth and twentieth-century favorites for flute and piano at Wuhan’s Qintai Concert Hall. Their program will feature works by Poulenc, Franck, Debussy and Piazzolla.
