Paul Huang: Return to the Past

He’s not Itzhak (Isaac) Perlman. Not Joshua Bell. Not anyone we actually remember hearing live—most of us. Maybe he’s Fritz (that’s German, though) Kreisler. More likely…no, you’ll see, he has to be the reincarnation of the great (another Hebraic name) Jascha (Jacob) Heifitz. The playing is surreal.   The name is “Paul”. An Asian, New […]

Fine Arts Quartet with Orion Weiss, piano Post Concert Blog

 The FAQ: Keeper of the Flame, Guardian of the Grail Expectations are one thing, but feeling the refinement, the effortless merging of power and artistry are yet another. Thursday night at Tryon Concert Association’s presentation of the Fine Arts Quartet was the full flowering of a distinctly European influence, as Efim Bioco commented in a reception […]

Great gifts aren’t ubiquitous, and they aren’t always understood. Often they are cultivated in seclusion, like an Emily Dickinson or a Henry Thoreau. Ultimately, though, the secret’s […]

An Evening with Peter Rösel: Living Large

Holy Cross Episcopal Church, a short walk from Tryon Fine Arts Center, held an elaborate “German feast” beforehand. Master Chef Geoff Carey, leading an army of hostesses and kitchen staff, fed us pork schnitzel(with whole grain mustard sauce or lemon), red cabbage, spaetzle (homemade egg noodles), buttered squash and rolls. Beverages were plentiful. The desserts […]

ASHU, ALEX, AND ALL OF US

I’m reaching for words to describe the TGIF event at Tryon Fine Arts Center this past Friday, October 23. This will likely be a Daedalus mission…flying too close to the sun. Ashu and Alex walk onto the stage a little after 6:00 PM and a brief introduction by Gwen Suesse, who, as Tryon Concert Association president/TGIF  stagehand […]

Who is Zuill Bailey?

For awhile, this past Saturday night, he was Victor Borge on cello–which isn’t a put-down. At the conclusion of the concert, many of us walked out of the TFAC hall shaking our heads, saying there weren’t any words for what we’d just been through. How could we speak easily of what by all appearances had […]
