TWO VIDEOS FROM OUR LAST STUDENT PIANO RECITAL

Previous events

Fall Fantasia Student Piano Recital

Piano Music Recital - featuring music composed by James Domine. This will be a live performance presented online via Zoom.

From Maestro Domine's notes: Beginning late in 2019 and continuing through the Winter of 2020 James Domine experienced an extraordinary outpouring of piano compositions. Like a stone tossed into a pond causes ripples across the water, these pieces reflect a transcription of vibrations emerging from the personification of what dwells in the void on the other side of the piano strings. These pieces flowed in an almost supernatural stream of musical consciousness through Domine who, in turn, arranged to give them to these students to learn and perform at this recital.

Performers are from the Studio of Joanna Ezrin

Recital Tickets $10 per adult (children and parents of students free)

Danse Macabre: Variations on "Dies Irae" for Piano Solo

Enjoy the YouTube world premiere of Maestro Domine's new video, "Danse Macabre: Variations on 'Dies Irae' for Piano Solo; An Audio Visual Realization". The premiere took place on Monday May 11, 2020 at 7:00pm, and the video will remain online. The piece is 12 minutes long. Click on the following link, or copy and paste the link into your browser: https://youtu.be/PU5XBnGhLf0

Program Notes: Danse Macabre: Variations on “Dies Irae” is one of eight pieces for solo piano composed in 2019 by James Domine. The music creates a supernatural musical atmosphere surrounding the medieval chant that intones the Day of Judgment. Beginning with the image of a haunted piano played by ghostly apparitions, using ancient and contemporary art, the video conjures interpretative impressions that combine to form a surreal visual landscape that follows a kaleidoscopic narrative as the music unfolds. www.jamesdomine.com Copyright © 2020 - All Rights Reserved.
