Ivory Series is the brainchild of Malaysian classical pianist Mei Lin Hii, initiated for Kuala Lumpur’s Premier Jazz club No Black Tie in March 2018. It is a classical music series, aiming to combine classical music with various living art forms such as visual arts, dance, and poetry. With its monthly thematic happenings, Ivory Series has seen collaboration and experimentation from paper art installation to dance duets, and from poetry reading to video mapping, all within the intimate frame of a piano recital or chamber music concert.
Back by popular demand, the May edition of Ivory Series will present Metamorphosis III, with French videographer Arnaud Blondel. Repertoire includes Beethoven Pathetique and Pastorale sonatas, Mendelssohn Songs without words, Arvo Pärt For Alina, Prokofiev Sonata no.2, excerpts from Bach English and French suites, Philip Glass Metamorphosis and more.
Guest performer will be gifted soprano, Mei Foong Ang.
