It is our pleasure to welcome pianist Kuok-Wai Lio for a recital appearance at Schuster Hall, Creative Arts Center, Wright State University on Sunday, July 24th at 3:00 p.m.  The recital is presented by the School of Music and sponsored by the Greater Cincinnati Chinese Music Society.  

A graduate of Curtis Institute of Music in 2010, Kuok-Wai was a recipient of the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant (2013) administered by the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts (previous grant recipients include Hillary Hahn, Joshua Bell, Richard Stoltzman, George Li, Anthony McGill, Yuja Wang, and others), as well as the 2016 Career Advancement Award, Musical Fund Society of Philadelphia. Praised by the Vancouver Sun as a "musician's musician" and for his "sensitive playing" by the New York Times, the Macau-born pianist is active as a soloist and chamber musician worldwide. He has performed at venues such as Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, Tonhalle Zürich, and Herkulessaal in Munich. He also stood in for a New York recital for the legendary pianist, Radu Lupu.

Kuok-Wai’s principal teachers include Gabriel Kwok, Gary Graffman, Boris Berman, and Stanislav Ioudenitch.  He was also invited by Sir András Schiff to take part in his masterclasses in Europe, and by Leon Fleisher to his mentorship program at Caramoor in upstate New York.  He will perform an exquisite program of works by Haydn, Beethoven, and Schubert.  The recital is free and open to the public.
