Piano Recital: Current

Rubendall Recital Hall, Weiss Center for the Arts

Joined by baritone James Martin and Heare Ensemble (piano, cello and flute), pianist Jennifer Blyth examines landscape/waterscape as history, and as an exhibit of consequences. The program seeks to explore aural images and narratives of water from multiple perspectives through works for trio and voice and for solo piano and voice. Rivers, oceans and waterways converge as nature, habitat, artifact, system, problem, wealth, ideology, history, place and aesthetic in a recital designed to complement the Edward Burtynsky exhibit at The Trout Gallery. This performance will feature a video installation by Dickinson artist Todd Arsenault, alongside compositions by Ravel, Cowell, Crumb, Copland and Rzweski.
