"The Poetry of Places” is a program of newly-written works inspired by architecture. These are piano and toy piano works (with singing), with electronics and multimedia (video) featuring composers Amy Beth Kirsten, Hannah Lash, Pamela Madsen, James Matheson, Harold Meltzer, Lewis Spratlan, and Jack Van Zandt. These newly-written compositions are inspired by diverse buildings: American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, Aaron Copland’s House, Montserrat Monastery in Spain, House on Island in Pine Plains, NY, Frank Gehry’s IAC Building in Manhattan, Louis Kahn’s National Assembly Buildings in Dhaka, Bangladesh, and Newgrange Ancient Temple in Ireland.

"The sextet of accomplished composers worked with solitary houses on lakeside islands, an anomalous monolith in Dhaka, the world’s oldest extant building, the complex interior of Aaron Copland’s home, and a unique art museum. How these composers conceived these structures in sound, whether giving them literal measurements or spiritual ideas – that was the challenge of this music, nearly all of it dedicated to Ms. Shpachenko herself. They couldn’t have chosen a more apt executant… Ms. Shpachenko played not only these six very different concepts, but she added a toy piano and – in a beautiful croon – her own voice… The result was something magical, a vision which transcended building and, like any art, put us in the mood… truly original… mysterious and touching…"
