Chicago-based, Austin-born pianist Mabel Kwan has been praised by the Chicago Classical Review for “stunning virtuosity, musicality and resourcefulness that was almost as enjoyable to watch as to hear." She is a pianist for Ensemble Dal Niente and the trio Pesedjet. Her recent solo albums, one poetic switch and Inventions feature new works written for her on clavichord and piano. Upcoming releases include the world premiere recording of Trois Hommages by Georg Friedrich Haas, and chamber music of George Lewis with Ensemble Dal Niente. In the 2016-2017 season Mabel continues her clavichord commissioning project through an artist grant from the city of Chicago, prepares to tackle a new work for multiple keyboards on Ensemble Dal Niente's Hard Music Hard Liquor series, and presents new solo piano and Pesedjet trio programs that deviate ever so slightly from the traditional concert experience.
