Pianissimo

The piano, or, to use its full name, pianoforte, earned its name because it can be played both quietly (piano) and loudly (forte). Lately there seems to be a trend toward the quiet side. David Garland presents an hour of pianissimo pianos.

The piano, or, to use its full name, pianoforte, earned its name because it can be played both quietly (piano) and loudly (forte). Lately there seems to be a trend toward the quiet side. Suddenly there are a number of young composer/pianists exploring a relaxed and alert sensibility in their music. David Garland presents an hour pianissimo pianos.

A surprising number of works have been inspired by psychiatry – or more specifically, by the plight of those in need of psychiatric treatment.  We’ll hear some of them.  From Elodie Lauten, listen to selections from her "Two Cents Opera."  There's also music from Peter Broderick's "Falling From Trees" and William Susman's "When Medicine Got It Wrong."  Plus music by Peter Gabriel for the film "Birdy," along with music by Michael Nyman, and more.
