In November 2017, Pianist Solungga Liu (Associate Professor of Piano at Bowling Green State University) performed at the Library of Congress with a program of music drawn almost entirely from their manuscript collection. Liu’s performance included the world premiere of a work by American composer Charles Griffes that had been thought to be lost but was discovered in the Library’s collection.  This performance reprises much of that concert, including works by Amy Beach, César Franck, and Griffes, including the Ohio Premiere of Griffes’ 1915 transcription of Claude Debussy’s Les parfums de la nuit from Iberia.  Great Performances is supported in part by the Dorothy MacKenzie Price Fund and Kingston Health Care.
