Among the highlights of Lau’s repertoire is “Fantaisie Bohémienne,” a composition originally penned by Les AMIS’ artistic director, Michael Pepa. Lau recounted how a chance encounter led to Pepa attending one of her recitals, subsequently earning her an invitation to participate in the concert series.

Bach’s “Partita for Violin Solo No. 1 in B Minor” before delving into Pepa’s own “Fantaisie Bohémienne.” The musical journey concludes with the grandeur of Camille Saint-Saens’ “Violin Concerto No. 3,” with pianist Ben Smith accompanying Lau.
