Frederic Rzewski: An Appreciation

Zipper Concert Hall and the Colburn Plaza 200 S Grand Ave., Los Angeles

The iconic composer-pianist Frederic Rzewski was to have given a Piano Spheres recital this coming February in a rare US appearance. Now rescheduled to Saturday April 16th, pianists Ursula Oppens and Lisa Moore join Piano Spheres core artists, Emerging Artists, and Guest Artists from the last 20 years in a celebration of Rzewski's music. An open air, four-hour concert/celebration of his life and legacy on the Colburn Plaza starting at 4:00, includes many of his works for piano.

The following concert at Zipper Hall at 8:00 includes the world premiere of “Suite,” commissioned by Piano Spheres, the west coast premiere of “Amoramaro,” the two-piano version of "Winnsboro Cottonmill Blues” performed by HOCKET, and other works to be announced.

Musical exchange and fantasy form are the inspirations for a program of preludes, fantasies, and other short works by seven composers spanning half a millennium. Like a beating heart, Schumann’s Fantasiestück, Op. 12 is nestled in the middle of the recital.
