Piano Spheres: Susan Svrcek
Visualizing the Contemporary Piano
September 20, 2014 @ 8pm

Piano Spheres’ Susan Svrcek presents an evening of piano music with visual connections and elements designed to tell compelling, engaging and powerful stories. Presenting the works of composers from Los Angeles and around the world, Svrcek’s recital will feature projected images from the art and ideas that inspired the musical works she performs. Opening with music from Toshinao Sato’s Light Colored Album, the program includes the works by Carlos Rivera (on paintings by Goya), Loyola Marymount’s Mark Saya and the world premiere of Jason Barabba’s Sheryl’s Studio, with the original artwork that inspired that piece on display inside Boston Court’s Branson Theater. The program closes with Yuji Takahashi’s haunting and challenging Kwanju, May 1980 and Chained Hands in Prayer accompanied by artwork from Taeko Tomiyama’s Requiem for Kwanju dealing with the difficult issues surrounding the massacre in Kwanju, South Korea.

After the concert, stay for a discussion with the pianist and composer Jason Barabba who will talk about the links between forms of art, and will take any questions you might have about the program.

Tickets are $25/$20 for Seniors
