Music of Albeníz, Amy Beach, Correlli, de Falla, Erroll Garner, Paganini, Astor Piazzolla and Manuel Ponce

This powerful duo of young, genre-defying musicians presents a remarkably eclectic concert. Italian Baroque is juxtaposed with 19th-century masterpieces of Paganini; jazz is paired with the seductive gestures of traditional Spanish song; and the paradigm-bending program closes with Astor Piazzolla’s spirited celebration of four eras of tango. Applauded by the Calgary Herald as “talented, sensitive…brilliant,” JIJI is an adventurous guitarist, known for her virtuosity and command of diverse repertoire. Violinist Danbi Um captivates audiences with her virtuosity, individual sound and interpretive sensitivity.

“A graceful and nuanced player…JIJI presented an intimate, captivating performance” — Kansas City Star

“utterly dazzling”  — The Strad on Danbi Um
