Pianist Jihye Chang has been internationally and nationally engaged as a soloist, chamber musician, and new music specialist. She has premiered numerous works by prominent composers, including a piano concerto by the Grammy award winning composer Robert Aldridge, and has recorded five CDs of contemporary works on Albany and Centaur labels.

This program is the third chapter of her five-year solo piano project, Continuum 88, which began in 2016, spanning performances in Korea, Taiwan, and across the US. In this project, Chang explores the major forms and genres of piano literature – Preludes, Etudes, Fantasies, Miniatures and Variations, and Sonatas. This project has two goals: exploring the masterworks of each category and engaging living composers to write in that form/genre, then performing the newly written works more than once, and within the context of the literature. By doing so, Continuum 88 will foster a greater connection for the audience with these new works.

During the 2017-18 season, Chang performed new etudes by prominent Australian composer Natalie Williams, etudes by Luke Haaksma and Yiguo Yan selected from the Brevard Music Center’s Etude Project (2017), and an etude by young Korean composer Cheol-Hun Jung multiple times in various venues, alongside etudes by Chopin, Debussy, Ligeti, and Rachmaninoff. The program at O1C signals the beginning of Continuum 88, Part III: Fantasies, with a few etudes that will connect it with Part II: Etudes. This program will include five world premieres, with two works by Bay Area composers Addie Camsuzou and Daniel Godsil, and three works written for this project by Seungyon Kim, Peter Kramer, and Shinuh Lee. These new works will be programmed with Schumann’s monumental fantasy, Mozart’s short and fascinating fantasy, and a few wonderful etudes by Chopin, Debussy, and Ligeti.
