“Pianoply” Concert on Five Grand Pianos in Four Different Concert Environments at EMPAC [Berkshire on Stage]
By Larry Murray
At 7:30pm on Saturday (April 11), Pianoply will lead the audience through all four of the world-class performance spaces at EMPAC at RPI in Troy. The evening of piano performances brings together some of the leading soloists working today in new music to explore their instrument’s full color spectrum in EMPAC’s complete range of acoustic environments. Performing on grand pianos of varying sizes and manufactures, Pianoply will examine virtuosity through the lens of situation and setting.
Pianoply will feature soloists Vicky Chow, Stephen Drury, Mabel Kwan and Marilyn Nonken performing on a selection of pianos: a 9′ Hamburg Steinway, 9′ New York Steinway, 7′ Fazioli, 6′ 7″ Bösendorfer and 7′ 6″ Yamaha pianos.
