120 Years of Solo Piano

120 Years of Solo Piano

Lisa Moore

Tuesday, November 13, 2012, 6pm

Miller Theatre at Columbia University

This event has ended.

      “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.
