Piano Salon Trilogy: Can You Dance To This?
Add to your calendar
Date: April 21, 2:00 pm
Continues Until:
Location: 1803 North 7th Street
Details:

Frank French, pianist and composer, returns to The Art Center with his massive repertoire of piano literature, stretching from the 18th century to the present day. This series covers the ascendency of instrumental music, from the early days of the piano, to advances in instrument building, to composers’ demand for greater expression. In addition to performing live, French will also share his knowledge of music theory, composers’ biographies, and cultural events that shaped the sounds of each era, providing the audience with historical context that enriches the listening experience.

Composers covered include Gottschalk, Hayden, Chopin, Schumann, Albeniz, and Bach, as well as some of French’s own compositions. Join us and discover the transformation of the piano from an intimate setting instrument to one that would come to dominate the solo performance world.
