A Tale of Three Cities: Pianism in Vienna, Paris and New York
Proceeding from past Spring Island surveys of the overall classical piano repertoire, this seminar will focus upon piano writing emanating from three discrete cultural centers over the past two centuries.
In three two-hour sessions, Arthur Tollefson will focus upon the keyboard output of the German, French and American traditions. As in his 2008 and 2010 seminars, the presentations will be illustrated with copious live performances of excerpts exemplifying the three cities’ pianistic legacy.
