Pianist Avan Yu and the Borealis String Quartet will perform together in Rose Gellert Hall on April 13

Langley Community Music School welcomes international pianist Avan Yu, along with the Borealis String Quartet to the Rose Gellert Hall on April 13 at 7:30 p.m.

“Avan has put together a fascinating and musically diverse program you don’t want to miss,” said Elizabeth Bergmann, artistic director concerts for LCMS.

“He’ll play the famous last Sonata by Mozart — a work that is full energy and life.

“He will also perform the first book of Etudes by Debussy, masterpieces of French impressionist writing which explore the technical and musical challenges inherent in most of Debussy’s piano music.”

The program also includes the famous Hungarian Rhapsody no. 12 by Franz Liszt.

Yu will be joined by the Borealis String Quartet to form a powerful chamber ensemble and present the Brahms Piano Quintet.

“The Quintet is considered by many to be one of his best large scale works written when he was only 35 years old,” said Bergmann.

“It is a dramatic work full of energy and widely regarded as pinnacle in quintet writing.”

“Yu has a long standing relationship with LCMS,” she said.

“In fact, he recorded a CD at the Rose Gellert Hall and it will be available for sale at the concert.”

Tickets are $22 for adults, $20 for seniors, and $16 for students. Call the box office for tickets at 604-534-2848. The Rose Gellert Hall is located at 4899 207 St.
