120 Years of Solo Piano
Tuesday, November 13, 2012
THIS EVENT HAS ALREADY OCCURED IN A PREVIOUS SEASON!
“New York’s queen of avant-garde piano” (The New Yorker) offers a sampler of solo works for her instrument, stretching from the 1890’s to the present day. Alongside works by familiar names, such as Scriabin, Glass, and Janáček, are several premieres, including a new work by the promising young composer Hannah Lash.
Bring a friend, grab a drink, and join some of today’s most interesting performers onstage at Miller Theatre on select Tuesday evenings. This fall, Miller continues its Pop-Up Concerts, an informal, free series designed to provide a chance to test out ideas and hear from new voices before they hit the Miller mainstage. This fresh take on the concert experience brings an intimate, living room-type setting to Miller’s stage. All concerts start at 6 p.m. Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis, and doors open at 5:30 p.m.
