descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Theresa Wong is a cellist, composer, vocalist and improviser based in San Francisco. Her first CD release The Unlearning is a collection of miniature songs for violin, cello and two voices inspired by the "Disasters of War" etchings by Francisco Goya. Composed in 2009 and recorded in duo with herself and violinist/vocalist extraordinaire Carla Kihlstedt, this is an intimate and unique work that brings all her remarkable skills as a vocalist, performer, composer and conceptualist together into this new and exciting project. Modern art songs in an experimental pop vein."-Tzadik
