Beginning next week I will present a series of three informal afternoons at the piano, in what will be more performance art events than recitals. The idea is to stimulate audience awareness of the piano as a young peoples' invention -- which it would have been had it been invented after, rather than before the Industrial Revolution.

The focus of these events will be the ear, as it always should be in a performance of music, but all too often isn't. The ear is fast--really fast. But because we live in a culture of too much sound, a lot of our ear-energy is spent tuning out rather than tuning in. Being tuned in means being rapt in the aura of sound that makes every one as magic as the tinkling of a bell or of the triangle in the orchestra.

If you are interested in more information please get in touch via email: It would be great to see you there.
