Gilbert Kalish and Christina Dahl, Duo Piano    

Wednesday, February 25, 8:00 PM
Recital Hall | Staller Center for the Arts
Free Admission

This concert neatly pairs the old and the new: Ades and Chopin Mazurkas, Janacek and Crumb, Schubert and Messiaen. For the first time in their collaboration together, Kalish and Dahl split the concert between music for solo piano, and for collaborative keyboard, allowing the listener to hear them in all possible iterations at the instrument. The Schubert Fantasie in f minor still remains one of the most exceptionally beautiful and powerful pieces ever written for two pianists at the same keyboard, and the Messiaen is another towering work for two pianists at two pianos.
