Li-Chin Lai

I will be performing John Downey’s “Eastlake Terrace” at a farewell dinner reception for the 2008-09 U.S. Fulbright Grantees and in honor of the retirement of Dr. Wu Jing-jyi on Friday, June 12, 2009 at the National Theater Concert Hall in Taipei, Taiwan.

In my search for piano pieces written by Fulbright composers, I stumbled across John Downey’s “Eastlake Terrace.” When I obtained the score, I was immediately struck by its impressionism and mysteriousness. Its extremely dramatic dynamic range and impressionistic tone color greatly interested me. I look forward to performing this piece, and I hope to play more of his pieces in the future.
