Sung will perform pieces by Paganini, Sciarrino, Bach, Lachenmann and Ysaye. The recital will explore each composer’s approach to the challenges of writing for solo violin and discuss influences and relationships between the pieces. The musical choices reflect the times and places in which the composers lived. Sung also will discuss the artistic movements and historical events that formed these environments.
