"Quotations and Homages" CD pre-release concert, new date

April 4 at 8 pm

Dear colleagues!

I am very excited to invite you to our upcoming Cal Poly Piano Ensemble Concert next Wednesday, February 28 at 8 pm at Cal Poly Pomona Music Recital Hall. This will be the premiere concert of the CPP Piano Ensemble on campus. I will perform with my students in this concert, which will feature very unique and exciting repertoire for pianos, toy pianos, electronics and other instruments. The concert will present the West Coast Premiere of “Arebati” for 2 toy pianos, 2 pianos, celesta, marimba, vibraphone and electronics, written specifically for the ensemble by composer Jack Van Zandt (premiered by the Cal Poly Pomona Piano Ensemble at their Florida International Toy Piano Festival tour in early January), as well as works by Antonín Dvořák, Tom Flaherty, Jerome Kitzke, Thomas Kotcheff, Tristan Perich, Samara Rice, Franz Schubert, and Julia Wolfe. I am so incredibly proud of my students, who are sounding fantastic! I can't wait to share this program with you!

I also wanted to let you know that my "Quotations and Homages" CD pre-release concert was rescheduled to Wednesday, April 4 at 8 pm at Cal Poly Pomona Recital Hall (it was originally scheduled for tonight). My new CD "Quotations and Homages" will be released on Reference Recordings on April 6 and this concert will celebrate the release, which features a new work by Cal Poly Pomona professor and Music Department Chair Peter Yates! The new homages by Adam Borecki, Daniel Felsenfeld, Tom Flaherty, Vera Ivanova, Missy Mazzoli, Nick Norton, and Peter Yates were inspired by a variety of earlier composers and pieces, from Mozart to Brahms to Stravinsky to Messiaen to Carter to Gubaidulina to The Velvet Underground. In a program both serious and lighthearted, the new works will be performed by me on April 4 together with some of the original inspirations by Brahms, Debussy, Prokofiev, Satie and Stravinsky.

I would be very happy to see you at one or both of these exciting upcoming piano events!
