Piano Steampunk 2: Where is Chopin?
“I believe we should talk about all classical music — especially the connection between new music and old music — and not keep it caged in an ivory tower anymore.” – Jenny Q Chai
Building on the success of her Piano Steampunk series, pianist Jenny Q Chai presents: Where is Chopin? In this performance, Jenny Q Chai explores the relationship between piano and electronics. The program will create a vivid musical story, making use of storytelling techniques common to novels and films, along with cutting edge music technology, such as the artificial intelligence program Antescofo. Highlighting works by composers Jaroslaw Kapuscinski and Robert Schumann, Chai will take audiences on an aural and visual journey that boldly redefines how we think of classical music today.
Works to be performed during the “Where is Chopin?” program include:
Jaroslaw Kapuscinski, Oli’s Dream
Robert Schumann, selections from Carnaval:
Jaroslaw Kapuscinski, Where is Chopin?
