Qing Li and Richard Dowling Bring their Music to Las Cruces
When she was 16 years old and studying at the Central Conservatory in Beijing, violinist Qing Li was selected to play in a master class with the renowned violinist Berl Senofsky, who then invited her to study with him at the Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore. Qing Li has been there ever since, performing as Principal Second Violinist in the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, and maintaining a busy career as a soloist and chamber musician. She and pianist Richard Dowling came to KRWG’s studios to talk with Intermezzo host Leora Zeitlin about playing in remote corners of New Mexico as Piatigorsky Foundtion musicians, studying with Senofsky, and more. Recorded on April 18, 2014.
