On December 15, 2013, Le Petit Salon de Musique will present the exciting cello and piano duo of Ismar Gomes and Wan-Chi Su. Gomes and Su met when they were both attending graduate school at the prestigious Peabody Conservatory at Johns Hopkins University. The two began rehearsing and performing together, focusing on pieces for cello and piano that display their virtuoso abilities. In addition to mastering the available repertoire from Beethoven and Schubert to Poulene and Schnittke, they have begun to commission and perform pieces from contemporary composers.
Ismar Sergio Gomes is an accomplished orchestral and chamber musician. He serves as Assistant Principal cello of the Mid-Atlantic Symphony and Principal of Bel Cantanti Opera and regularly appears with many other orchestras along the east coast. Gomes has performed throughout the US and Europe, including tours of the Netherlands in addition to concerts in France and Canada. He recently served as acting cellist with the Harlem String Quartet, which toured throughout the US, receiving enthusiastic reviews at every stop. Apart from his extensive work as a baroque cellist, Mr. Gomes has commissioned and premiered many works by emerging composers, most recently working with Marc Neikrug and Paul Moravec.
In her native Taiwan, pianist Wan-Chi Su received major prizes at the Taiwan National Student Music Competition and at the Taiwan Cultural Cup Invitational Piano Competition. She has since been invited to participate in many international music festivals, including the Beethoven Institute (NY) and the Paris Piano Program. Ms. Su is a dynamic and sought-after performer in the Baltimore area as a chamber musician and vocal accompanist.
About Le Petit Salon de Musique
Welcome to "le Petit Salon de Musique", a place where you can enjoy exceptional music in a lovely, intimate setting at a very reasonable price.
Here's what some of our guests have said about Le Petit Salon concerts:
"On December 18, 2011 we attended the concert at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship which featured Alexandria and Friends. It was our first concert at the Fellowship. We experienced one of the most exciting, enjoyable and musically competent concerts we have attended in many years. Alexandria Lee's piano performance was professional, beautiful and electrifying. The individual soloists on the violin, cello, viola and flute displayed outstanding competency. The finale quartet was nothing more than breathtaking. We look forward to attending future concerts." Deanna and Ted Schwartzman
"The concerts are absolutely superb. The performers are first rate and the venue is great. Keep it up!" George
"I've attended two of the concerts, and have to say that I was amazed at their professionalism. The music is wonderful and the atmosphere cozy. I could listen to the string quartet every week-they were magnificent!" Diana
"I just wanted to say that I was so glad I made it to the concert (just in the nick of time!!) because the performance was absolutely wonderful. I commented to another that I wouldn't be surprised if people somewhere, in other venues, etc., pay up to 10 times what we did yesterday to hear such a concert (Clueri Quartet). It was just amazing. Thank you for continuing to bring us such talented artists, at an irresistibly affordable price." Carol Castillo
