The Piano Lunaire | Aaron Copland: The Music Within

October 10, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$15

Join Adam Sherkin on October 10 in Toronto for this unique performance event! This recital is part of a concert tour that includes stops in Buffalo, Toronto and New York City.

THE STORY: Aaron Copland was a fine pianist. In 1926, he premiered his own “Jazz” piano concerto. Continuing to write for the instrument throughout his career, Copland turned increasingly to other pianists for interpretation. On October 25th, 1957, William Masselos gave the premiere performance of the composer’s PIANO FANTASY at The Juilliard School in New York City. Masselos played the fantasy twice, punctuated by a short intermission. Originally subtitled ‘The Music Within,’ the Fantasy remained close to Copland’s heart throughout his life. To commemorate the 62nd anniversary of its premiere, Adam Sherkin presents a re-creation of the 1957 performance, including world premiers of his own music, commissioned especially for the occasion: a prelude, “The Music Within” and a postlude, “The Music Beyond.”

THE SHOW: Tickets are available on this platform or at the door (same price). Wine and beer will be available for purchase and a short, 20-minute intermission will punctuate both performances of the Copland Fantasy. Don’t miss this exclusive recital experience!
