Grand Piano Sequence in Southwest Florida kicks off in October

The Grand Piano Collection made a Plan B series this period, but that’s in title only. It is a full roster of  “A” stars: Beethoven, be-bop, Bochum.

After Vintage Chamber Concerts folded into the series’ firm in November, Grand Piano Collection has included more chamber songs to its forthcoming year introduced this week. The Manhattan Chamber Players and a trio headlined by top-tier musicians like Van Cliburn piano winner Jon Nakamatsu are in the mix.  

And it resumes its COVID-interrupted dance through each and every a person of Beethoven’s 32 piano sonatas in the course of his 250th anniversary in 2020.

“We’re restarting that. Two of our concerts are likely to be a continuation of the Beethoven venture that we set on pause,” promised Milana Strezeva, president and artist director of the collection.

Schaghajegh Nosrati, performs Jan. 12.

She pointed out that it might consider numerous seasons to finish them. The collection had only attained Sonata 15 when public events had been shut down in March 2020, so there is plenty of good Beethoven left.

The hint of be-bop could come from Havana pianist Aldo Lopez Gavilan, a classically experienced triple threat. He performs symphonic classical will work, composes buoyant tunes like “Playgrounds” and is acknowledged for his jazz improvisations. Audiences will get a style of that in the second fifty percent of his live performance Nov. 10.
