21st century pianists continue…

The Honens International Piano Competition looks for "21st century musicians for 21st century audiences" and this month the Piano wraps up its review of recent laureates.

On this weeks program there is music where Claude Debussy wanted so many levels of notes and accents that his Images book II started out as a composition for two pianos, then a German look at the Jazz Age with Paul Hindemith's Suite 1922 and the program ends with Drei Klavierstucke of Franz Schubert from that amazingly productive year of life, 1827. All this music performed by laureates from the 2009 Honens International Piano Competition.

The program starts Sunday afternoon at 5 on KPAC & KTXI.

host, Randy Anderson
