Speaking of piano…

The Spectrum Second Annual Modern Piano (+) Festival started yesterday and continues through December. Full listing here; I’m on Friday.

Preceding me is Jacob Rhodebeck in a performance of music by Alex Nante. The last time I was at Spectrum I heard Rhodebeck play two movements of Universe by Gerald Humel, a composer born in Cleveland but who spent most of his artistic life in Berlin. I was astounded by both the score and and the performance, and immediately bought the CD recorded by Jeffery Burns. Universe is now added to Write it All Down.
