Stephen Drury: Cage Centenary Solo Concert
Thursday, February 28, 2013 at 8:00 PM (EST)
Part of his two-day residency at Brown University entitled "100 Years, and Still Counting: John Cage", Stephen Drury performs his touring Cage Centenary solo piano program in a rare, not-to-be-missed recital.
Pianist and conductor Stephen Drury has performed throughout the world with a repertoire that stretches from Bach to Liszt to the music of today. He has appeared at Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, the Barbican Centre and Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, the Cité de la Musique in Paris, and the Leipzig Gewandhaus. A champion of contemporary music, he has taken the sound of dissonance into remote corners of Pakistan, Greenland and Montana. Drury has worked closely with many of the leading composers of our time, including Cage, Ligeti, Rzewski, Reich, Messiaen, Zorn, Berio, Lachenmann, Wolﬀ, Harvey, Finnissy, and Hyla. Drury has recorded the music of Cage, Carter, Ives, Stockhausen, Zorn and Rzewski, as well as works of Liszt and Beethoven. He is artistic director and conductor of the Callithumpian Consort, and he created and directs the Summer Institute for Contemporary Performance Practice at New England Conservatory where he is on the piano faculty.
The concert is free but ticket registration is required for admission.
