More Piano

Today I host a WQXR Q2  Mixtape with selections by and commentary about Walker, Reimann, Birtwistle, Rzewski, Dello Joio, Ruders, Adès, Hamelin, and Auerbach. I believe the broadcast is officially at 3 PM and will stream for two weeks starting at 5 PM. 

The program features piano music by living classical composers.


The last time I did something with WQXR I played a little Bach. Also appearing that evening was Rob Schwimmer who played theremin with Vicky Chow on harpsichord. It was extraordinary moving.

I've since heard Rob's solo piano album Beyond the Sky, a collection of wonderful music that comes as close to being absolutely unclassifiable as anything I've heard. A suite on YouTube (also on the disc) gives an idea...

Much more at the official website.
