IUP piano faculty member Henry Wong Doe performed a solo recital on the “Music on Madison” series at Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church, New York City, on Sunday, March 5, 2017.

The program featured works by Rachmaninoff and Mussorgsky, as well as the world premiere of Eve de Castro-Robinson's new work for solo piano, "a zigazgged gaze."

de Castro Robinson is one of New Zealand's foremost living composers and is on the composition faculty at the University of Auckland. She wrote the piece in response to 10 artworks by New Zealand artists from the James Wallace Art Trust collection.

Wong Doe will be performing and recording "a zigzagged gaze" alongside Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition" next month in New Zealand for Rattle Records. Pictured below is Andrew Henderson, organist and music director of Madison Ave Presbyterian Church, and Wong Doe.
