Susan Svrček welcomes Spring with two solo works by Milhaud — Le Printemps and Suite (1913). She will be joined by guest artist Nelson Ojeda-Valdés in Stravinsky’s 1913 Le Sacre du Printemps, arranged for two pianos; and barcode (dance music for two pianos), written for the duo in 2015, by Frederick Lesemann.
Susan, one of the Piano Spheres founding artists, is noted for her wide range of repertoire, from Mozart and Beethoven to Xenakis and Boulez. She has achieved mastery in her performances, as noted in the Los Angeles Times, “because she has probed so carefully into, and brought so many facets out of the massive repertory for the solo piano, one comes to her recitals with high expectations, new thrills, rediscovered gems, unknown masterpieces.”
Nelson Ojeda-Valdés has premiered works by composers Tom Lidell and David Meckler at Voces Novae New Music Festival and works by Carlos Carillo and Desmar Guevara at Pregones Theate in the Bronx, NY and at MACLA (Movimiento de Arte y Cultura Latino Americana) in San José, California. He is featured in the recordings of composers Greg Lawrence and Paul Bailey.
His solo album “España” has been released under the label Louis Ferdinand Productions.
