Los Angeles based composer and pianist Thomas Kotcheff presents Matched, a recital of musical pairings. In this program, newly composed 21st century pieces are paired with masterworks from the classical piano repertoire. The evening will include the Florida premiere of Kotcheff’s own Other Roads as well as selections by Charles Ives, Jordan Nelson, and Frederic Rzewski.

 

Kotcheff - outdoor concert

PROGRAM:
Claude Debussy (1862 – 1918) – Préludes from Book I

Thomas Kotcheff (b. 1988) – Other Roads Florida premiere

Charles Ives (1874 – 1954) – “The Alcotts” from Piano Sonata No. 2, Concord, Mass., 1840-60

Jordan Nelson (b. 1984) – Four Interludes world premiere

Frederic Rzewski (b. 1938) – Cadenza (con o senza Beethoven)

I have an exciting program lined up which includes a world premiere by a close colleague of mine in Los Angeles, Jordan Nelson. I personally commissioned this piece and curated this program around musical pairings of newly written works with masterpieces from the piano repertoire. On this evening, the audience will hear a celebrated piece of piano music from the 20th century alongside a piece that was created to interact with it.
