Premiere of Many Hands
Leonard Nimoy Thalia, 2537 Broadway, New York 10025
  • Marc Peloquin, piano

Pianist Marc Peloquin premieres a major new work by David Del Tredici. Many Hands is a virtuoso five movement exploration of piano technique. The work includes every possibility of hand simultaneities -- that is to say music for left hand alone, right hand alone (very rare!) , as well as the conventional two hands together. Also on the program is Del Tredici's pianistic terror S/M Ballade (commissioned by Peloquin) and Late in the Game.
