So excited for George Li to return to campus to perform in our Artist Recital Series! To think only 4 years ago he was just one of our competitors for the Inaugural Cooper International Competition. We’re so proud!
Find out more about his performance on campus (March 1) right here at our Events Calendar.
The best classical album of 2013: Jeremy Denk, Goldberg Variations
Let’s play a game of word association. Ready? Goldberg Variations. If your response is Glenn Gould, you’re not alone. The close association is enough to prevent some from ever trying a new recording. Denk smashes through preconceptions and produces an overwhelmingly original account of a piece we thought we all knew. Denk’s recording, coincidentally released the week after receiving the prestigious MacArthur “Genius Grant,” is quirky, emotionally compelling and dazzling. Denk brings out Bach’s great “curlicues, eddies and whirlpools” (as he describes in the eloquent video liner notes on an accompanying DVD) with an uncluttered freshness and simplicity. He cleverly sets the Gould standard aside, and maybe it’s about time.
Guest composer Alex Christie ’09 returns to campus this weekend to give a lecture on his piano and electronics piece he will be recording with Tom Rosenkranz ’99 in Klonick Studios.
