CHAMBER MUSIC COACHINGS
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Shelley Ng performed and recorded my solo piano and chamber works in the most recent years. I was really thrilled by all these performances. As a contemporary composer, I always need to spend time to discuss with my players since we always seek new sonorities, ideas and new extended techniques. Shelley has a strong sense of contemporary new music. She is really open-minded and she always accepts new concepts and is willing to work with composers to explore and share new directions. I am very eager to work with Shelley as every performance she gave me such a great surprise and I feel very satisfied and fulfilled.
Besides offering brilliant and outstanding piano technique, Shelley always provides beautifully tone color, full of imagination, elegant and powerful, passion and affection in her performance and music. And she is such a young and super talented musician. I look forward to working with her in the future and making more new and beautiful music.
