Piano Spheres: Richard Valitutto | NAKHT

Piano Spheres: Richard Valitutto | NAKHT

Los Angeles-based pianist and composer Richard Valitutto performs the inaugural concert of Piano Spheres' new Satellite series, which focuses on emerging performers and new music for piano.  As part of his ongoing exploration of the piano nocturne in the 20th/21st centuries, NAKHT delves into the complex and volatile relationships between the night and the human psyche. Intimate, violent, meditative, whimsical, languorous, and occasionally full of abject terror, this program is comprised of works spanning the last century, including premieres of new works by Los Angeles composer Nicholas Deyoe and himself. The program also features works by Frederic Rzewski, Salvatore Sciarrino, Olivier Messiaen, Aleksandr Skryabin, and Francis Poulenc.
