Dr. Tuylieva has been described as “a profound artist, capable of commanding the attention of the audience with her inimitable sincerity and conviction.” A native of Turkmenistan, Dr. Tuylieva’s program will feature music composed by fellow native, Nury Hallmammedov. The “Ballada” and “Sounds of Dutar” masterfully combine elements of Western music with the colors and harmonies of Turkmenistan. Schumann’s “Kreisleriana” and Sonatas by Haydn and Scarlatti round out the program.
