10:00-11:00 Business Meeting
Presenter: Matthew Hagle
Looking back at the future: teaching, playing, and listening to the great piano pieces of the late 20th century
The piano music of 1950 and after presents great challenges to us as teachers, but can also offer great musical rewards. How can we bridge the gap? In this presentation, I will suggest some pieces, and some approaches, that might be useful to teachers and students wanting to approach this “difficult” music. I’ll be pairing pieces for students to learn with concert-level pieces that they might want to listen to or learn about, and giving performances of both. The pieces will be by Messiaen, Ligeti, Ives and Rzewski. I hope to see you there!
