Duo Beaux Arts (USA) presents an exciting and expressive program for piano four-hands and piano solo music featuring some of the most renowned and beloved European composers (Schubert, Debussy, Ravel, Faure, and Mendelssohn) as well as a masterwork by South American composer Alberto Ginastera, who was known as the father of classical music in Argentina. Audiences will be treated to dazzling virtuosic display as well as heart-warming lyricism in this kaleidoscopic program.

Duo Beaux Arts was formed in 2008 by internationally renowned concert pianists Tao Lin and Catherine Lan. The duo has performed extensively throughout the US and Asia to both critical and audience acclaim, and just made its European début in France and Switzerland. In December 2018 the duo will be making its début in Barcelona, Spain. The Beaux Arts Duo performs music from the Baroque to the contemporary eras, including tango and ragtime. They have been featured in articles in Venice Fort Lauderdale Magazine and Parklander Magazine, and are also the founders of Beaux Arts Chamber Music Series at the Naples, FL Opera House.

As a concerto soloist, Catherine Lan will be making her debut with Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra in 2019. She has also made concerto appearances with Vancouver Symphony, Edmonton Symphony, and Northeastern Pennsylvania Philharmonic, to name a few. She has also performed recitals in Taiwan, Japan, Thailand, Singapore, Mexico, Croatia, Slovenia, Canada, United Kingdom, and she looks forward to her debut in Italy in 2019. Her highly acclaimed performances have been featured at WLRN-Public Television “Beethoven & Mas” program, “Beethoven Universal TV” series, Becon TV “On Stage with Iris Acker”, Fu-Hsin Broadcasting Station, and CBC Radio’s “Westcoast Performance” Debut series.
