An event every month that begins at 5:30 pm on day First of the month, repeating until June 7, 2018
WELCOME TO THE 2018 CONCERT SEASON AT CBC’S GLENN GOULD STUDIO! On the first Thursday of every month – January through June – we present the WRITE OFF THE KEYBOARD Series, in partnership with Steinway Piano Gallery Toronto.
Thursday, January 4th at 5:30 pm: Sergei Rachmaninoff spent much of the first half of his life composing and the second half, performing. This WRITE OFF THE KEYBOARD installment features guest saxophonist David Zucchi, joining Adam Sherkin in a performance of three new transcriptions for sax and piano: Deux morceaux de fantaisie, Nos. 1 and 5 (Op. 3) and the much-loved Vocalise. Late works by Rachmaninoff for solo piano are also included here and the world premiere of Sherkin’s Elegiac Variants, for alto sax and piano.
