Tzu-Feng Liu hasn't been able to attend Sunday Chatter much recently. The pianist has taken a position as a professor of music and piano at a small private university in North Carolina. But it's summer, so she's back home in Albuquerque with her husband, Ben Cho, an engineer at Emcore's solar division. Ben says he is "Dr. Liu's biggest fan," and has been since they met as students at the University of Illinois and he became her "personal recording engineer." When he was growing up his parents couldn't interest him in classical music, but now he's an aficionado. On June 10 Tzu-Feng performed a hot rendition of Schulfhoff's "Hot Sonate" with saxophonist Patrick Posey at Sunday Chatter. She'll be performing with flutist Alaina Diehl at Robertson's recital hall July 8. You can keep up with her musical schedule at her website.
