Sarah Cahill and Adam Tendler Play Luciano Berio

Warming Up with Luciano Berio- The brilliant young pianist Adam Tendler, visiting from New York, joins Sarah Cahill in a warm-up concert featuring Luciano Berio's piano compositions before they perform the same program a week later at the Italian Academy in New York. Among the Berio pieces they will play are Touch (1991) for piano four-hands, Erdenklavier (1969), Cinque Variazioni (1952/3, rev. 1966), Canzonetta (1991) for piano four-hands, Rounds (1967), Memory (1969/73) for electric piano and electric harpsichord, Sequenza IV (1965/66), Wasserklavier (1965), and Feuerklavier (1989). Hot beverages will be served. Luciano Berio (1925-2003) was a pioneering composer and teacher in the European avant garde; he taught at Mills College in the early 60s, and among his students there were Steve Reich and Phil Lesh. This evening's program focuses on the piano music Berio wrote while living in New York City. More information here.
