Performers: Fabian Almazan, Kris Davis, Jeremy Jordan, John Stetch, Daniel Anastasio and Erika Dohi
Description: This all-piano concert explores the idea of a transcription, and works or improvisations that are based on pre-existing themes, styles, and aesthetics: what’s added, what’s lost, and what remains of the original? Transcription has been an important compositional element for hundreds of years, but its meaning, purpose, and reception has changed with time. Music by Franz Liszt and original compositions and improvisations by John Stetch, Jeremy Jordan, Kris Davis, and Fabian Almazan. This concert includes a commission and world premiere by Kris Davis.
