As part of Classical Keys 22/23 season, I'm extremely excited to share "Pandemic Piano Preludes." This solo recital project was a long time in the making. I commissioned five distinguished composers to write a piano prelude in the midst of the lockdown when music was silent and we were all at home reflecting on trying times. I will be premiering preludes by: Julian Bennett Holmes, Stephanie Ann Boyd, Thomas Weaver, Noah Kellman & Harry Stafylakis. This solo recital will also feature standard prelude favorites such as: Bach, Debussy, Scriabin, Rachmaninoff, Gershwin, and rarely performed preludes by Roslavets & Irene Britton Smith.
