For the final Portrait of an Artist recital of the 2016 Walla Walla Chamber Music Festival, you are in for a treat. Taiwanese-American pianist, Wei-Han Wu has established himself as one of the most versatile musicians in a crowded field. At home in the sometimes disparate worlds of art song, contemporary music, chamber music and concert repertoire, Wei-Han brings a cheerful sense of camaraderie to his every performance. At roughly 90 pounds soaking wet, do not underestimate Wei-Han at the dinner table… No one knows where he puts it, but he will keep eating long after you have thrown in the towel.
Tonight, however, Wei-Han Wu will provide you with a feast in works for piano by Liszt, Gershwin, Rachmaninov, Bach and more. We close the Portrait of an Artist Series for 2016 at the always air-conditioned and stylish Foundry Vineyards gallery and tasting room.
All selections will be announced from the stage.
