Kaufman Music Center – Piano Dialogues: Adam Tendler

Advertisement / Publicité

December 16, 2020 – 7pm Eastern

ROBERT SCHUMANN – Carnaval Op. 9 (1834-1835)
CHRISTIAN WOLFF – FANTAIL (22 pieces for a pianist) (2020) World Premiere!

Pianist Adam Tendler premieres FANTAIL, a new major work by iconic American composer Christian Wolff. Commissioned by the pianist, FANTAIL is a 22 movement, unofficial response to Robert Schumann’s Carnaval, and like Schumann’s legendary set, a tour of Wolff’s musical laboratory and universe. Tendler will intersperse the world premiere of Wolff’s FANTAIL with Schumann’s Carnaval in a mash-up that puts both complete works, and their composers, in a fresh dialogue – reframing, blurring, even challenging our notions of what is classical and what is contemporary.
