Are you still keeping up?

It is possible for a pianist to compose music that they cannot duplicate at a piano? Having a wide range of virtues, a virtuoso can play with distinction, music that others stumble through.

On the Piano this Sunday compositions that tax even accomplished performers like Franz Schubert's Wanderer Fantasy, then music that Stravinsky composed to take on the road and earn some much needed money and the concert ends with Maurice Ravel's Gaspard de la Nuit, a monster-piece that was composed with ultimate difficulties in mind. Never fear, at the piano we have Laureates of the Honens International Piano Competition performing these masterworks.

The Piano heard every Sunday afternoon at 5 on KPAC & KTXI.
