The season-opening event at Gustin House pays homage to the many innovative women composers of various times and cultures. Music for violin and piano–ranging from a Sonata by Elizabeth Jacquet de la Guerre (1665-1729), to Romances by Clara Schumann (1819-1896) and Amy Beach (1867-1944), to the 21st century work Éxtasis by Alice Ping Yee Ho (b. 1960)–will be performed by the Mathieu-Chua Duo.

The Mathieu-Chua Duo comprises violinist Véronique Mathieu and pianist Stephanie Chua. They are dynamic and compelling artists who champion contemporary music of emerging composers alongside those internationally established; they relish re-introducing the works of forgotten composers of the Baroque, Classical and Romantic periods to a new audience.

Dr. Mathieu, soloist and chamber musician, performs internationally; she was recently appointed to the David. L. Kaplan Chair in Music at the University of Saskatchewan. Ms. Chua is much in demand as a collaborative pianist, notably for her dedication to imaginative presentation of contemporary music. Blending their distinctive personalities, the artists create a singular musical voice.

Folk music, the traditional music of the people in a country or region, has for centuries inspired composers through its rhythms, melodies, and textures. In a program of duo and duet music, pianists Katherine Dowling and Clark Schaufele invite the audience on a journey from Oslo to Andalusia, from Bali to Budapest, to experience how composers have drawn on rich ethnic traditions and time-honoured songs. Through this music, listeners are connected to universal human experiences of joy and sorrow, loss and love, all transcending space, time and cultures.  
 
Praised by the New York Times for her “crystalline performances, gestural expressiveness, and careful attention to colour,” and by the Boston Globe for her “effortless incisiveness,” award-winning pianist Dr. Katherine Dowling has performed across North America and Europe as a soloist and chamber musician. A native of Regina and a Gustin musical descendant, she currently teaches at the University of Regina and adjudicates and performs throughout the province.  
 
Pianist Dr. Clark Schaufeleperformer, accompanist-coach, and educatorhas been acclaimed for his “magnificent interpretations.” In a multi-faceted career spanning genres, and on both piano and double bass, he appears across a variety of shows, tours, and recordings, ranging from classical and jazz to country and folk. A dedicated collaborative pianist who also works as a vocal coach, he is presently Head of Piano at the University of Regina Conservatory of Performing Arts.
