7:30PM Monday 13 March 2017, Lang Recital Hall, Hunter College.
Please join us for Refracting the Piano, a performance and discussion by pianist Imri Talgam featuring three new works by composers Vicente Alexim, Daniel Fox, and Peter Kramer as well as a performance of Simata by Georges Aperghis, performed here for piano and ring modulator. Vicente Alexim‘s Gemini creates a duet between the equal tempered instrument and its muted self, revealing an expanded spectral palette. Daniel Fox‘s Study of the piano expands the focus of the pianist from hammer strikes to timbre-sculpting key releases. Peter Kramer‘s expansive Not Sorrow filters its tones and its quotations of Schumann through the resonant modes of the piano.
Directions: Take the 69th Street Hunter College campus entrance of the Hunter North Building, on the south side of the street, between Lexington and Park Avenues. Lang Recital Hall is on the 4th Floor.
