A program of works by American composers that explore the subtleties of solo piano. The program encourages the audience to listen beyond the fundamental tones that they initially hear and to get lost in a sea of overtones and harmonics as vibrating sonic bodies explore every part of the room. Tonal works intertwined with pantonal works further explore a variety of shades in the modern solo piano pallette. Also, featured is Command Voices a work for solo pianist, that employs vibrating objects on the strings to conceptually alter the conversational relationship between performer and instrument.
Command Voices (2017) by Elizabeth A. Baker
Dream (1948) by John Cage
A Room (1943) by John Cage
Piano 2 (1986) by Julius Eastman
TBD (2017) by Erich Barganier
In addition to the listed works, this iteration of the program will feature the world premiere of a new solo piano work by Erich Barganier, a Florida-native composer currently pursing a masters degree in music composition at NYU.
