"Horizon" CD by Wong Doe

IUP piano faculty Henry Wong Doe’s debut CD, Horizon, of solo piano and chamber works by New Zealand composer Gareth Farr, was released on the Trust Records label on August 7, 2012.

This recording project was funded by grants from Creative NZ (Arts Council of NZ) and the IUP University Senate Research Committee.

Wong Doe recorded the disc in March and May 2011 in New York City, collaborating with two New York-based musicians: cellist Jisoo Ok and flutist Jesse Schiffman. William Dart from the New Zealand Herald wrote: “Wong Doe launches his CD of Farr’s piano music with the daredevil defiance of ‘Sepuluh Jari,’ delivering a powerhouse toccata and sustaining the dazzle through to the final ‘Ramayana.’”

This recording can be purchased online both as CD and digital download on iTunes.
