There are piano works that make players wish they had more than ten fingers—and you will hear several in this fascinating program that honors legends of piano virtuosity and explores sounds you may never have experienced from a piano before. For pianists in the audience, Lin’s dazzling virtuosity on complex works like Gyorgy Ligeti’s etudes will make you wonder just how many notes per minute are possible on the pianistic speedway. Discover a pianist of “bravura and intensity” (The New York Times) in music by Ligeti, Olivier Messiaen, and Unsuk Chin.

Listen and learn! “Delights & Disasters of the Piano” are revealed in this entertaining Jordan Kitt’s Education Series for Music in the Mansion pre-concert lecture by scholar and pianist Donald Manildi, curator of the International Piano Archives at University of Maryland, 6:30pm in the Shapiro Music Room. Free with concert ticket.
