#3500: Pianist Composers

Email a Friend

Listen to music by pianist/composers in a nocturnal vein on this New Sounds program.  There’s music from the Berlin-based pianist and piano-builder Davide Martello, who may be best known for showing up with his hand-made grand piano during the protests in Taksim Square to "inspire politicians through music."  Also, listen to music from Italian pianist/composer Ludovico Einaudi along with music by the late Dutch composer Simeon Ten Holt. 

There’s also piano music by the French composer Sylvain Chauveau that incorporates electronics – “It’s a Dark Night in Berlin.”  Plus, a work for piano and ensemble by Norway’s Ketil Bjørnstad and music from Canada-based composer Lubomyr Melnyk, who employs music in a continuous mode in his “Nightrail from the Sun.” And more.
