“Fables”: Cathy Yang and Benyamin Nuss
Fables is a project that combines the diverse colors and dream worlds of two distinct genres: classical piano music and video game scores. From the melancholic-expressive melodies of Maurice Ravel’s Ma mère l’Oye to the original harmonies of Nobuo Uematsu’s music for the Final Fantasy game series, the program is woven together by the immensely narrative nature of the music. Perhaps these two genres are not so different after all... Come and explore the worlds full of fantasy and imagination found in the piano works of French Impressionism and in the gaming and virtual worlds of Final Fantasy, Saga Frontier, and more!
