2018 Florida International Toy Piano Festival - Guest Artists
Nadia Shpachenko & The Cal Poly Pomona Piano Ensemble
The Cal Poly Pomona Piano Ensemble: The Cal Poly Pomona Piano Ensemble is directed by multiple GRAMMY®-nominated pianist Nadia Shpachenko, who often performs with the group. The Piano Ensemble performs repertoire for piano 4-hands, duo-piano and for 3-8 keyboardplayers on multiple instruments, which include pianos, toy pianos, and harpsichords. In addition to performing repertoire from the classical canon, the group’s mission is to program and promote newly-written piano ensemble repertoire and to collaborate with contemporary composers. Most recently The Cal Poly Pomona Piano Ensemble worked with composers Tom Flaherty, James Matheson, and Jack Van Zandt, whose new pieces they will tour during the 2017/2018 concert season.

Figmentum is new performing ensemble and collaboration between Daria Binkowski, Kyle Rowan, and Ania Sundstrom based in San Diego, CA. We are a flutist, clarinetist, and pianist, but more than that, we are composers, writers, builders. A Figmentum event may be at a coffee house in North Park, a museum Downtown, or even a bookstore by the beach in Del Mar. Toy pianos – pink, red, and black – may find their way onto our stage. Newly-constructed instruments might make their debut. Our performances seek to engage with the community, to be an integral part of San Diego’s culture.

Currently in our inaugural season, our projects include: commissioning and performing new works for toy piano, in ensemble and in combination with our core instruments; commissioning and performing new works by women, both as part of our standard repertoire and on a dedicated concert program in Spring 2018; and commissioning and performing new works for our newly constructed replica of Harry Partch’s Harmonic Canon II.
