CanAm Piano Duo: “This is the World” Revisited

Faculty Artist Series
The CanAm Piano Duo returns to Watson Hall to perform David Maslanka’s “This is the World,” an immersive work for two pianos and two percussionists. This piece celebrates with quiet awe the nature of our world, both the planet on which we live and the amazing web of life that it supports. In the words of the composer himself, this work “touches something enduring about the American heart and experience, specifically an element of darkness, estrangement and waiting which I wish to see brought forward and transformed in our time. We are at the cusp of enormous change.” Musicians include Karen Beres and Christopher Hahn, piano; and John R. Beck and Lance Drege, percussion.
